Web Accessibility and Older People

There is significant overlap between Web accessibility for people with disabilities and Web use by older people, or "seniors".

While older people often experience changes in vision, hearing, dexterity, and memory as they age, they might not consider themselves to have disabilities. Yet the accessibility provisions that make the Web accessible also benefit older people with diminishing abilities. See the Web Accessibility Benefits People With and Without Disabilities section of "Social Factors in Developing a Web Accessibility Business Case for Your Organization" for more.
