It won't be possible for me to attend the reunion this afternoon but here are 
my comments :
- demographic grafics are good;
- Slide "Ageing and functionnal impairments" : why not to mention 
"Cognitive decline" on this slide ? For me there are 4 types of difficulties 
and that is better to present all of them on the same slide and perhaps give 
some more explainations on other slides for each of them;
- Slide "Older people are different !" : it would be better to have a title 
like "Older people are connected !" (find the right word in english)
And perhaps cite some examples of use of computer and internet for seniors : 
communicate with their children by email or skype, look photographs of their 
family, online shopping, online holidays destinations searching, online bus 
or train timetables searching, ...
- slide "Accessibility requirement" : not enought explicit 
  I would prefer : 
  * Make text enlargment possible;
  * Use important contrast;
  * Make link legend explicit;
  * ...
- slide "Usability requirement" : same remark
 * Use sans serif fonts, avoid italic, underline and justification;
 * Use consistent layout;
 * ...
Remark : slides are not aide-memoire, they must contain the same information  
               as speech. This is the communication principle of efficient 
               redundancy.

These are my remarks.
I ask myself if we should not mention such difficulties as
- difficulty to distighuish cliquable elements;
- difficulty to scroll and to use rolling elements;
that are included in "Predictability, consistency and tolerance".

Have a goog meeting !
