The Research on Elderly-Adaptive Interface Design Based on Choice-Oriented Attention Theory
Visual selective attention is a way of cognition processing which makes the limited mental resources focus on the most significant information during a specific period of time. The visual selection is introduced to the interface design research for the elderly in order to analyze the elderly’s mental cognitive process and establish the relationship between the two from the perspective of selective attention. Two experimental methods are used: No.One, to compare and research the elderly group and the young one’s visual preference through the extraction of interface’s visual elements. No. Two, eye tracking experiment. Calculate the elderly group and young group’s average fixation time and average fixation points, then validate the calculation data. Through coding the visual elements which are obtained from the two experiments, the visual element code sets are determined, which conforms to the elderly’s visual selective attention on the interface, so as to guide the interface design practice for the elderly.
