Designing web sites for older adults: Expert review of usability for older adults at 50 web sites

In this document from 2005, findings from an expert review of 50 Web sites are presented. In a variation on the traditional heuristic evaluation methodology, heuristics were derived from research about older adults and Web design to perform persona-based, task-based reviews of Web sites that older adult users are likely to go to. The heuristics are extracted from our findings in Designing Web Sites for Older Adults: A Review of Recent, Relevant Research.
