Abstract

This panel will discuss the needs of older adults in making full use of computers and similar advanced technology. The panelists include representatives from both academic research and industrial organizations; all are experts in the impact of aging on the use of technology. Questions to be addressed by the panel include: What is the most important thing a designer can do to ensure that older adults can use a product? Will there still be issues associated with aging and computer use as the current generation of computer users gets older? Are normal good design methods enough to ensure that a product will work for this population? If not, is it worth the extra effort?
