Workshop Presentation
Jeff Johnson  

If a website or app’s target audience includes older adults, certain aspects of its design become more important. This session describes age-related factors that affect ability to use websites and apps, and presents design guidelines that reflect the capabilities, usage patterns, and preferences of older users. Features include: demographics of users of digital technology, by age; age-related factors affecting ability to use computers and online services; common design problems that decrease usability for older adults; design guidelines that can help designers avoid these common pitfalls.
