Abstract

Today, users need to interact with the UIs of the computer systems at any time and in any place. In fact, users have to deal with diverse devices supporting diverse interfaces and used in diverse environments. Thus, research must to be devoted to adapting the content, presentation and also the navigation scheme of the user interface not only for people without disabilities but also to impaired users according to updated context of use. In fact, context is captured from the surrounding environment in which the user is interacting with the application, gathered from a variety of sources and changed dynamically over time. For that reason, we propose to include context awareness system as a solution for adaptation of user interface tailored to user with special needs. In this paper, we try to introduce our contribution in how to build a user interface which is aware and capable to adapt depending of context. Our contribution is demonstrated through the behaviour of task model.
