Item Number: Guideline 2.4: Provide ways to help users with disabilities navigate...
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Reference to \"users with disabilities\" in appropriate
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The point is that users are able to navigate etc. It is unnecessary and meaningless to limit this specifically to users with a disability. 

Under this guideline I have a hearing impairment so I should be able to navigate etc.. 

My colleague without an apparent disability should NOT be able to navigate etc.???

The whole of WCAG is about access for people with disabilities - There is no need to specifically mention them in one Guideline

Proposed Change:
Delete words \"with disabilities\"
