Age-related differences in multimodal recipient design: younger, but not older adults, adapt speech and co-speech gestures to common ground

Louise Schubotz, Aslı Özyürek, Judith Holler
2018 Language, Cognition and Neuroscience  
The two age groups did not differ in terms of the number of words and narrative events mentioned per narration, or in terms of gesture frequency, gesture rate, or percentage of events expressed multimodally  ...  The older participants' communicative behaviour may therefore also reflect differences in social or pragmatic goals.  ...  We would also like to thank Alexia Galati and one anonymous reviewer for their helpful comments and suggestions on earlier versions of this manuscript.  ...

Conversations On Multimodal Input Design With Older Adults [article]

Adam S. Williams, Sarah Coler, Francisco Ortega
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Multimodal input systems can help bridge the wide range of physical abilities found in older generations.  ...  After conducting a survey/interview session with a group of older adults at an assisted living community we believe that gesture and speech should be the main inputs for that system.  ...  There are however differences in how older adults and younger adults interact with and perceive controls [2] .  ...
