Re "Seniors adapting to the wired life" (Page A1, Aug. 25): I enjoyed Anita Creamer's article about seniors over age 75 who are learning to use the Internet and computers. I applaud their interest in expanding their knowledge and skills. However, there was something the article did not address, which I haven't yet seen reporting on: The physical limitations of the elderly can make it difficult to use computers.
For example, a shaky hand can make it nearly impossible to use a mouse. In addition, it can be difficult to identify the correct link or button on a crowded website when one's eyesight has deteriorated. I hope that computer manufacturers and Internet companies such as Amazon will address this for the rest of us, who are aging and will eventually have similar problems. It could also be a great opportunity for an entrepreneur.
