Technologies are in daily use, also for educational reasons and getting knowledge. Reading from screens and from papers are different. People are in need to adapt but it is slow process. It can make some different problems that affect people life quality. There is a need for solution. We offer one of the possible solutions: E-material formatting application, what improve comfort of using e-material in learning and study process and decrease near work load by adapting on individual needs. It is based on developed recommendations for user-centric and adaptive educational e-material creation and formatting. Possible technical solutions have been found.
