Hi Roberto

It's my understanding that what Jan specifically wanted to ask WCAG about
was - how to describe the red circles. E.g. sighted and non-sighted people
could be discussing an illustration and a sighted person says something like
"the red highlighted part is good", making a visual comment that the
non-sighted person is not aware of. So I think we are looking for advice on
how best to write these longdescs. Where is the fine balance between not too
little and not too much? And how can we encourage good authoring of a
longdesc?!

Jan, Jutta - isn't that what this point was about?

regards, Karen
