Abstract

We investigated how a user interface could support people with dementia (PwD) in having personal and direct access to a music-playing device. Despite a growing interest in designing technology for people with dementia, personal and direct access to systems are not always considered. We introduce Sentic (Figure 1), an interface concept of a music player of which the user interface can be tailored to fit the ability of people with dementia. This paper reports briefly on insights from the design process of Sentic that was informed by workshop sessions with people with dementia. Then, the rationale behind Sentic is presented, and a realization of Sentic is proposed as an example of an alternative approach to design interfaces that can be tailored to the abilities of people with dementia.
