  6. Designing senior-friendly websites
    Natasha "Tasha" Beauchamp 2011-02-04 Elder Pages Online
    Check out the new Medicare website. It is very senior-friendly. What a relief! The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services just unveiled the new www.medicare.gov. Most websites are constructed by "Net natives," young designers who never have known a world without the Internet. They are not aware of the components required to make a website inviting for persons with little Internet experience, never mind those with visual impairments and arthritic hands!

  8. Evaluation of Websites for Older Adults: How "Senior-Friendly" Are They?
    Traci A. Hart 2004-02
    Thirty-six websites designed for older adults were evaluated as to how well they complied to 25 "senior-friendly" guidelines recommended by the National Institute of Aging. Results indicate that a majority of the sites complied to guidelines related to basic navigation and content style but not for text size, text weight, or site map availability. Implications of compliance to these guidelines on user satisfaction and performance are discussed.

    Most Americans age 65+ live lives far removed from the Internet, know few people who use email or surf the Web, and cannot imagine why they would spend money and time learning how to use a computer.
