Information is available in many forms from different sources, in distributed locations; access to information is supported by networks of varying performance; the cost of accessing and transporting the information varies for both the source and the transport route. Users who vary in their preferences, background knowledge required to interpret the information and motivation for accessing it, gather information to perform many different tasks. This position paper outlines some of these variations in information provision and access, and explores the impact these variations have on the user's task performance, and the possibilities they make available to adapt the user interface for the presentation of information.

There is considerable pressure to make information more accessible, both to users with disabilities, and to users around the world. One focus of information dissemination and adaptation is the WWW. Current changes to browsers and content mainly effect HTML text, not multimedia. HMML is the proposed WWW standard for synchronised multimedia including video, audio, and media which are themselves static. The Chameleon editor produces HMML and provides conditionals on the selection of channels for a particular presentation. This provides support for the adaptability of multimedia by rules to select the one appropriate for the users language, presentation and other adaptation needs.

In the "direct manipulation" style of interacting with computers pop-up menus are becoming increasingly popular. The present study looks at the speed and accuracy of six different menu styles falling into two main groups, "moving" and "static" menus. After an initial "ballistic response task", subjects carried out a block of 15 selections with each menu style. The order of the menu styles was randomly varied for each subject to counter-balance possible "fatigue" and practice effects over subjects. The order of the items on the menus was also randomised to force subjects to use visual search at each trial rather than relying on their memory of the item's position from previous trials. The analysis of the response latencies for menu item selection indicates a clear performance advantage with static menus. There was no interaction between "skill level", determined by the ballistic response task, and performance on the menu selection task. The fastest and least error prone amongst the menu styles proved to be the circular menu.
