Not entirely true. It has been scientifically demonstrated that learning becomes more difficult as the brain ages. Should I dig up some nice medical articles for perusal?

Difficult is not "impossible."

The argument that something the vast majority can use, and I include blind individuals in that vast majority, means it's accessible.  Most smartphones have not had hard home buttons for years now, nor have tablets, etc.

And the "I'm a senior" bit holds absolutely, positively no water.  You can teach an old dog new tricks if said dog is willing to learn them.
