Hello,
I am proposing edits to section 3 of the Content Usable document for discussion by the group.  I believe the text can be more concise.  Content wise, I believe section 3 is trying to emphasize that everyone should use the design document and that usability testing should include people with disabilities, particularly for certain organizations.
Please respond to the group with your thoughts on the change below.
Thank you,
Rachael
Section 3: Applicability across websites
Current text:
How much effort an organization should expend on making a website friendly for people with cognitive impairments will vary. For organizations that provide public services, or are national (or international) private service providers and already conduct user-research, they should:

*        Review designs and early stage development with the design themes in this document.
For organizations that do not include usability testing as part of the process, they could use this document to review designs and implementations.
