Abstract:
Older Web users are now facing one of the most difficult challenges of their lives. The Web changes every day and they cannot keep up with it. As older age comes, individuals experience gradual and fluctuating decline in capabilities. These physical impairments make usage of the Web even more difficult. Web accessibility is an area devoted to solve accessibility problems of disabled people. However, as older people suffer disabilities, although less severe ones, they can profit from Web accessibility solutions. In this article, we review some of the most common impairments that affect older Web users, we analyze how these impairments are considered by Web Accessibility standards, and explore different approaches that improve Web user interface, in particular Email systems. Finally, we introduce our ideas to overcome unsolved Web accessibility barriers for older users describing an experience carried out at our University in Argentinean Patagonia
