This study aimed to explore elder users' reading behavior with online newspaper. The average age of twelve elder users is 68.67 years old. They were required to find news in the UDN online newspaper on the touch screen and enlarge or shrink the news pages to the appropriate size. The results showed that elder users didn't know how to flip the pages to read other news, and they spent more time looking for the zoom in and zoom out icons comparatively. They sometimes misunderstood the meanings of other function icons. Our findings suggest that it could put instructions on the UDN online newspaper interface to show how to use the function icons, helping elder users reading news and enlarge or shrink pages easily. The function of zoom in and zoom out could replace with using two fingers to pinch the pages, just like using touchpad or smart phone. In addition, the function icons position should be consistent, elder user will not be confused when they enter into the detailed news. © 2014 Springer International Publishing.
