Do you want to reach everybody? Then, in this aging world, don’t neglect geezers! If a website, document, or application requires superb eyesight, hearing, reaction speed, dexterity, memory, and digital savoir-faire, it’s not geezer-friendly. It may also exclude users with disabilities and violate government accessibility rules.
We can help, whether you need something new or improved. We comply with the latest accessibility standards. We detect and correct content and formats that could confuse, mislead, or alienate geezers (and non-geezers!). And we document our work so your geezers can make further changes without us.
Tell us about a spectacularly geezer-unfriendly interface. Send us a link to it or a picture of it, and describe the problem. It may wind up in this spot!
geezer.pro™ is a team of friendly geezers making things geezer-friendly.
(When needed, we get help from proto-geezers.)
