We expect expansion to other scenarios where a tailored or augmented user interface is necessary.

For example, having familiar terms and symbols is key to many users being able to use the web. Personalization enables the author the ability to keep their original design in tack, whilst enabling personalized experiences for different users via different user agents

It provides vocabularies that enable user agents to augment or adapt content to the user scenario and helps the user use and understand the content. It includes use cases and vocabularies for identifying the purpose of controls, symbols and user interface elements and supports simplification and avoiding distractions.

Our requirements have focused on  the needs of people with learning and cognitive disabilities, such as enabling people with age appropriate forgetfulness to users who customarily communicate using symbolic languages (generally known as Augmentative and Alternative Communications - AAC). We anticipate this work to befit other use cases where a tailored, or augmented user experience may be beneficial.
