By using Psychopy+Pavlovia, we are trying to run an online experiment whose target participants are Mandarin Native speakers (mainly people in Mainland China).
When we tried to pilot the experiment by asking people in Mainland China to test it, we realised that they couldn’t even load or access the Pavlovia normally, meaning it’d take them an extremely long time to load the experiment which might eventually crash in the middle of the experiment. We guess the firewall in China might be one of the reasons for the poor connection.
Any chance that anyone might have had this kind of problem before and know how to solve it?
(We understand that providing VPN service or helping the participants to change the IP address of their device may solve the problem, but that is the last thing we want to do.)
Thank you very much!
