A member of my family has a moderate disability for dealing with computers. He is largely unable to engage technology in general, and most on-screen GUIs are confusing and upsetting. He is, however, able to use email and browse the Internet to a limited degree, and he wants to progress in that.
Evolution works fairly well for the email. But I want to find a better software -- which in this case means simpler, easier and uncluttered.
- Simpler -- doesn't assume a heavy load of messages or super real-time exchange such as for chat. Doesn't present many features beyond the minimum.
- Easier -- has a highly fool-proof GUI.
- Uncluttered -- No sidebar with advertisements. No extraneous pop-ups.
I am certain the Gmail interface would not be acceptable (complex, visually cluttered, a bit hard to second-guess if you aren't computer-savvy). Three years ago I tried Thunderbird, but Evolution seemed to have a better GUI.
I guess I'm looking for the email-browser equivalent of a Jitterbug phone. Perhaps something designed for assistive technology is available. What would you recommend?
