||The combination of accessible content management systems, accessible desktop systems and content modalities with internalised notions about accessibility, can be used to form a new generation of information processing environments. Because of the presence of explicit entities that can be used to represent the User (perception) models on one side, and content and application models on the other side, we can experiment with new interaction schemes. These new interaction schemes will, because of the knowledge preservation process that is included in the approach, create a consistent body of information including real-world applications for education purposes.The paper shows, from the knowledge technology perspective, the development from traditional content consumption schemes towards knowledge consumption and even understanding consumption that may be stimulated to emerge. After all, understanding can be considered the dynamic systemic overview one can obtain of all the facts, the interactions between facts and the interactions between these interactions and it's surroundings. The mere process of conceiving and creating this systemic overview can be considered education to oneself. Allowing a system to include multiple perspectives on that systemic overview and additionally allow that system to create associations between these multiple viewpoints for any relation to be explicated, stimulates the emergence of mutual understanding. In other words, a system that facilitates communication from scratch.
