What is a Senior Pi?
The Senior Pi is a customization of the standard Raspberry Pi as a tool for use by a Senior. It provides some basic functions that could be handy for a Senior, and does not assume previous computer usage. It is not really intended as “Senior Computer”. All features are implemented as simple as possible. Touch to open application. Touch x in top right corner to close application. Large text is the default, helping those with visual impairment. It is really designed with the intention of 2 people. One person is the Senior user, and the 2nd person is the support person who does any setup/configuration changes. It is ideal for the Senior who has never had email, but who would benefit from the increased social contact, with family members. The Slide show is especially useful because pictures from emails automatically go there.
Please see the User Instructions page for detailed screen captures of the individual applications.
