This chapter reports on an initial study conducted as part of the EU-funded Immersive Accessibility (ImAc) project, whose broad objective it is to define the requirements for accessibility services such as audio description and audio subtitles within immersive environments. This study follows a user-centric research design approach. A focus group comprising blind and partially sighted people was conducted to establish end-user expectations, recommendations and perceptions in order to elicit first principles for developing system requirements. The chapter concludes with recommendations for the initial user specification for the ImAc project.
