Visual Design of Interactive Software for Older Adults

Visual features of interface design could “enhance comprehension, appeal, and ease of use in such a program for older adults.” I know that my grandparents would need bolder and bigger sized fonts in a program to make it easier for them to see and understand. Illustrations are also a good idea to make it easier for anyone (like we discussed in class with the metro-card machine and coffee shop assignments). I realized that when you design something you have to take into account who you’re designing it for. When making an interactive software for older people, like in this reading, you would need to make it have slower speeds, with cleaner and more direct functions.
