Seniors are some of the most tech challenged folks around, but now there appears to be a solution to make them getting online easier.

BigScreenLive is a new software package that you can install on a computer that attempts to make everyday activities like emailing and web surfing more intuitive for older generations.  As an added bonus, if a senior lives in a home, or only has access to a computer in a public space, the software can be installed on a thumb drive which the senior can plug into the computer, and the software will run from it.

The system would be limiting to people who are heavy users, but it could be the perfect way to finally get your parents and elderly family members online.  The service is subscription based with one month, six month and twelve month options.  You can read more details about what the service does on their info page.

While I haven’t gotten to try the service out for myself, it does look fairly intuitive, and I like the use of oversized buttons so that people can clearly see where they are going and what they are doing.  Seeing as they offer a free trial subscription, could certainly be worth some consideration as a gift this holiday season for the older people in your life.
