Abstract

Universal access is known as the concept of facilitating accesses to the desired data according to the varying capabilities and characteristics of users [1]. Universal access aims to be capable of recognizing and responding to the presence of different context in a seamless, unobtrusive and often invisible way. To achieve this goal, two important issues need to be solved, they are context awareness and content adaptation. In this paper, context is referred to as contextual information that can be used to characterize the situation of an entity where an entity can be a person, a place, a physical or computational object [2], The contextual information can be where and when the users are (time and space), as well as what the content are available nearby, and etc.
