The construction of speech output to support elderly visually impaired users starting to use the internet

Mary Zajicek

This paper is concerned with the construction of dialogues for speech output with large text, in a Web browser for elderly visually impaired people. Studies made in our research group, show that elderly visually impaired users experience great difficulty in getting going on the Internet when they have no previous experience in computing [6]. Age Associated Memory Impairment (AAMI) is a major problem for these users [2]. This coupled with their visual impairment demands a new dialogue interface modality.
