Artur Rot , Robert Kutera , Wiesława Gryncewicz


In much of the world, particularly the developed world, there’s a growing aging population. Our work focuses on user experience and its impact on user interface design of web-based applications for elderly people. The paper presents the set of aging-centered user interface design guidelines. An initial collection of guidelines was first developed through an extensive review of the human-computer interaction and agingoriented literature and through applying a series of classification methods. Then the Authors proposed an assessment framework, which could be used as an universal tool to evaluate the web-based system according the user interfaces dedicated for elderly people. The detailed guidelines were grouped into 7 categories which were granted with appropriate importance weights. In the next section ActGo-Gate platform was presented as a web-based application dedicated for activating and supporting elderly people. Finally, the user interface of the system was evaluated according the proposed criteria
