Uber for Seniors and Poor Visibility

Hi William, thanks for the article — this is a really good idea. My Father-in-law has racked up cancelled Uber charges as he can’t operate the App easily and there will be many like him who have a combination of age-related long sightedness and relatively low technology prior experience. So for them they can’t see the graphics easily, can’t read some of the text at all, nor understand what they can/need to do for each next step in the task sequence. I work in the Cambridge University Inclusive Design team, and we’ve developed some tools and techniques to help design for user populations of varying capability available for free at www.inclusivedesigntoolkit.com. Do have a look if you have time!
