First reactions:

1. Lead paragraph deals only with physical disabilities.
That misses the wider benefit of addressing the common experiences of
the wider group who at times have environmental or equipment limitations.

2. The word "policy links" just isn't strong enough: Suggest "international

3. Working groups: though looks like links are to deliverables, rather than
group pages themselves. Why?

4. Couldn't find members of various groups. Guess that would be under
WAI Participants.
