Personalization of user interfaces for browsing content is a key concept to ensure content accessibility. This personalization is especially needed for people with disabilities (e.g,. visually impaired) and/or for highly mobile individuals (driving, off-screen environments) and/or for people with limited devices (PDAs, mobile phones, etc.). In this direction, we introduce mechanisms, based on a user requirements study, that result in the generation of personalized user interfaces for browsing particular XML content types. These on-the-fly generated user interfaces can use several modalities for increasing communication possibilities: in this way, interactions between the user and the system can take place in a more natural manner.

In order to make Web content accessible, transformations (i.e. adaptations) of content must be performed. We distinguish two kinds of adaptations: adaptation performed at authoring-time (i.e. during the writing of documents) and adaptation performed at run-time (i.e. during content consultation).
