Mouse Trap

 

As technology continues to re-invent itself at a blinding pace, many of our senior population are feeling more isolated from it. Technorella teaches people to embrace and explore technology with the goal of keeping everyone connected.

If you were born into a generation where all a mouse did was run up the clock, then learning to mouse on a computer can be a daunting and frustrating task. Dexterity is one of the skills that declines as we get older. Grasping, clicking, double clicking, rolling and scrolling depends a lot on the size of your hand and touch sensitivity. Many of the queries and calls we respond to at Technorella.com come from people having difficulty with the hand eye coordination it takes to navigate with a mouse.

For these clients, we have been recommending touch screen computers and tablets. Touch technology addresses many accessibility challenges that face our aging population.

They are guided by touch which is one of our most refined senses.

Objects and text can instantly be made larger with a simple touch motion allowing the user to control their experience based on their own needs and limitations.

Tablets are light, portable and make wonderful traveling companions allowing the user to carry photos, music and reading material to share with friends and family.

Price. Tablets are much less expensive, a real plus on a fixed income.

By 2014, the senior population will out number any other for the first time ever. Become a technology tutor or ambassador to someone around you who may need your help staying connected.

This holiday season, give the gift of technology and if you lack the patience, you can always contact…Technorella.

From all of us at Technorella, we wish you and yours a happy, healthy and digitally blessed holiday season!
