There are a number of ways to improve UX for seniors.
Use large and legible fonts.
Seniors often have difficulty seeing, so it's important to use fonts that are easy to read. Choose large font sizes and use high contrast colors.
Keep things simple and easy to understand.
Avoid using jargon or complex language.
Provide clear instructions.
Use simple language and explain things step-by-step.
Make it easy to navigate.
Seniors may have difficulty remembering how to navigate through a website or app, so it's important to make it easy to get around. Use clear headings and menus, and provide links back to important pages.
Use images and videos
that illustrate what you're trying to say. This can help understanding concepts and remember information.
Test your designs with seniors.
The best way to make sure your UX is accessible to seniors is to test it with them. Get feedback on your designs and make changes based on their needs.
By following these tips, you can create inclusive UX that is accessible and easy to use.
Apple Best Practices
Prefer regular or heavy font weights in your app.
Consider using Regular, Medium, Semibold, or Bold font weights, because they are easier to see. Avoid Ultralight, Thin, and Light font weights, which can be more difficult to see.
Design with accessibility in mind.
Accessibility is not just about making information available to people with disabilities — it’s about making information available to everyone, regardless of their capabilities or situation.
Designing your app with accessibility in mind means prioritizing simplicity and perceivability and examining every design decision to ensure that it doesn’t exclude people who have different abilities or interact with their devices in different ways.
You already design your experience to adapt to environmental variations — such as device orientation, screen size, resolution, color gamut, and split view — because you want people to enjoy it in any context and on all supported devices.
The practice of inclusive design
An inclusive app, game or website is not only usable by different people, but also welcomes people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Discover how you can design inclusive content for your interface, language, imagery, and marketing materials and support the broadest possible range of people with your app or game.
With minimal additional effort, you can design your inclusive app to support the accessibility features people use to personalize the ways they interact with their devices.
