We need to understand what and how people experience computers, etc over 65. Ronni Bennett has a couple volunteers, maybe victims, for her demo.
Ronni is telling about her experience at CBS.com, ten years ago, when she was starting there and being decades older than the rest of the crowd.
The example is wearing gardening gloves and special glasses … the glasses reduce the light coming in and the gloves reduce the sensation and dexterity
this is not easy to tytpe
Above was done wearing gloves … I could only use one finger on each hand … and with Vaseline smeared glasses. Man wow.
Okay what can you …
Captchas suck …
Hardware and software needs to change. The 55+ plus segment is the fastest growing segment…but computers aren’t made for elders.
Really, bluntly, I could do a better job on my blog. I think the type might be too small and such.
Simplicity, larger buttons, fewer bells and whistles. Ronni … you are da bomb!
Another great reason to hate snap.com … extremely annoying and distracting for elders.
Ronni is seeing an iPhone for the first time. She thinks it’s cool … “Have you seen this?” I love it.
