Mussa commented on Live Better For Longer - The Home Guide

Hi Kate Rushton , thanks for the tag!

First, I congratulate Zandri Kuun  for this brilliant idea!

It is nice to see the five possible layouts of the guide. Thinking of older adults, i like Option 2: Row layout. It sound clear and will not complicate the user since we know older adults are 'fragile' so giving them the complex view of the guide it won't help them, simple view will work best.

Also the guide will be safe and easy to reach in Row layout because it display items one over another with full description without confusing the user even when he/she look aside and back again to that page.

I was trying to think if necessary the design should also be Inclusive! trying to think about other older adults with low vision; considering people with some kind of disability will make the guide very powerful example giving options for maximization of icons of the guide, or giving sound etc, for low vision older.

Put me on the list to test the prototype.

Again, Congratulation Zandri Kuun  and thanks Kate Rushton for taking Zandri!

Hi Simia,

Thanks to know you over there i hope to visit you one day to see and learn how that music & art therapy work. I am sure giving those kids that power or showing their talents over arts and music it will give them hope and new life.

Showcasing their talents will reduce some how stigma and discrimination. I hope you will have power to continue with this plan and God give you much power @KAHESA Zanzibar. Also i am suggesting not only to use exhibitions to showcase their talents please develop a web based app to show the world how they do even during those exhibitions and that will bring happiness to them the families and also more people will learn from you. If you will stack somewhere in the web development app i will glad to help so as to make Zanzibar a better place for inclusion.

Hi Kuun, thank you very much this is awesome, giving user two options with this idea is great. Since more technological devices available changing it eight manually or digitally is the best options. Thanks and keep it that ways.
