For those who might be interested I have posted the results of the recent
online survey about how and why people over the age of sixty use the
Internet and mobile (cell) phones.

results/ 

 

I will be discussing the results of this research in a paper, "Improving Web
Accessibility for the Elderly", which I am presenting at CSUN 2011 on March
16. http://www.csunconference.org/index.cfm?EID=80000300

ail&LCID=4676&ECTID=0> &p=380&page=scheduledetail&LCID=4676&ECTID=0  The
paper will also outline some of the issues older web users have with font
size and colour, and canvass various options for how they might be
addressed.
