Abstract

Traditional e-books are more and more exploited by readers, thanks to the chance of reading them on different devices and to the capability of storing a whole library of books in a light and portable device. However, they are still very rigid and do not adapt to the context of the readers. In this paper we propose a system for writing and reading enhanced e-books that are able to to the context where they are read and to the user’s choices during the reading. Our approach take advantage of the possibilities offered by today’s devices, like context-awareness and user interaction. Past proposals are limited to a specific field or did not consider a wide range of external conditions and interactions, providing a very limited adaptation.
