(“cloudstubborn” connection?) > How to provide a way for older adults to participate in the rapid acceleration of technology offered by the cloud?
My dad is 85 years old. He has mild Parkinson’s where his hands shake slightly, he also has poor vision and uses glasses, and because of this, he has a hard time reading text on a standard computer screen.
He used to love suffering on the web, but now he can’t easily do it. The main problems are:
- Can’t easily control the standard mouse. Because his hands shake slightly, it is hard to precisely control the mouse pointer.
- Can’t see small text, the size that is common on most 15-inch laptops.
- Can’t type because of reason #1 above.
- Could never wear a Quest-like headset due to he already has really thick glasses and has trouble with balance. He requires minimal visual dis-orientation.
