user-centred accessibility

I’m sitting in a talk by Liddie Nevile at AusWeb’05 on User-centred accessibility.  This is more on the topic that I was discussing here a week or two ago – accessibility turning into adaptivity.  Rather than trying to built websites that are universally accessible, the goal is to adapt websites to users’ individual capabilities.  You can read the paper here
It dovetails well with ideas that I have about user personalization on the web: users should control the way they interact with web applications, the format of the data, and the way it is presented.  This is the basis of the PUP (Personalization with User Privacy) protocol that I’m developing.
