Abstract The Web is becoming an increasingly important vehicle for many types of every day activities. At the same time, the technological platforms and devices used to access the Web are increasing both in number and complexity (e.g., PDAs, mobile devices, iTV, etc). Therefore, it is of crucial importance that web applications and services are accessible to all citizens in the Information Society, including people with disabilities, through a variety of different devices. Currently, Web accessibility is addressed mainly through development guidelines and de facto standards, and is required by law in many countries. Tools for assessing conformance to such guidelines are also available. Still, it is widely recognized that most web applications and services are not accessible by disabled people, due to limited expertise of web developers in web accessibility issues and related tools. Additionally, the development of web interfaces appropriate for different technological platforms and devices often requires the additional cost of maintaining alternative versions. Therefore, it becomes particularly important to face the above challenges in a cost effective way, by producing web interface elements capable of intelligent adaptation behaviour, i.e., capable of adapting to users? diverse characteristics, requirements and preferences, as well as to different devices, screen resolution, and aspect ratio, avoiding the need of multiple implementation. Towards this end, this thesis proposes an online tool which supports the development of fully accessible web resources, and in particular web forms, that: . Fully comply with current web accessibility de facto standard . Can be personalised according to users? needs and preferences Can be accessed through various platforms and devices . Can be constructed without specific knowledge of web accessibility, or indeed web development. As the developed tool is itself fully accessible, it also constitutes a step towards providing adequate means for people with disabilities to author web resources themselves.
