INTERNET FOR SENIORS IN EASY STEPS: UK EDITION
MICHAEL PRICE & SUE PRICE
Book Number: 86945
Product format: Paperback
Here is a wealth of information organised and written with seniors in mind: people who are keen to make full use of the internet's vast resources but who have not grown up with the jargon. Published in 2010 and based on Internet Explorer 8, it does not include the latest developments in technology, but the core areas for internet use are the same. Every process is accompanied by clear-jargon-free instructions and colour diagrams. A section on Getting Started covers the very basics, explaining what an internet-enabled computer is and the different connection types. Browsing is a key chapter, including opening a web page, following links, searching, adding to favourites, and the business of opening and closing tabs which catches out many an experienced user. A section on online puzzles covers crosswords and sudoku and concludes with online classic books and reference tools. Chess and Bridge get a chapter to themselves, followed by TV, radio, iPlayer, classical music archives and the London Theatre Guide. How-to sites teaching you watercolour painting or pen and ink drawing tap into the creative interests of many seniors, as does a section on learning languages. Booking a holiday and making travel arrangements are covered, and finally the resources of the web itself are featured, including emailing and creating a blog or website. 240pp paperback, colour diagrams.
