Hi Shawn, hi all.

I reviewed the document and any comments are included below.

* priority: [editor's discretion]
* location: Introduction, second paragraph
* current wording: "However, observing a person use the site with a  
screen reader will clearly show the developer that the alt text is  
ineffective and alt="search" is all that is needed."
* suggested revision: "However, observing a person use the site with  
a screen reader will clearly show the developer that the <code>alt</ 
code> text expressed in such way is ineffective, while  
<code>alt="search"</code> is all that is needed."


* priority: [editor's discretion]
* location: Users' Experience Interacting with the Web, first paragraph
* current wording: "For example, some assistive technologies (AT) are  
complicated and difficult to learn. A user with insufficient  
experience may not know how to use their AT effectively."
* suggested revision: "For example, some assistive technologies (AT)  
are complicated and difficult to learn. A user with insufficient  
experience may not know how to use his AT effectively."
* rationale: "his" and not "their"


* priority: [editor's discretion]
* location: Terminology and Notes, usability testing
* current wording: "Usability testing is a means for measuring how  
well people can use... a web page... for its intended purpose, i.e.  
usability testing measures the usability of the object."
* suggested revision: "Usability testing is a means for measuring how  
well people can use... a web page... for its intended purpose, for  
example usability testing measures the usability of the object."
* rationale: "for example," and not "e.g."


* priority: [editor's discretion]
* location: Terminology and Notes, user characteristics
* current wording: "User characteristics can include things like  
demographics, job responsibilities and tasks, hardware (e.g., laptop  
or desktop, processor speed, monitor resolution), environment (e.g.,  
home, shared office, private office, shared public terminal),  
software (e.g., operating system, browser version), computer  
experience, and Web experience (e.g., do they recognize clickable  
elements)"
* suggested revision: "User characteristics can include things like  
demographics, job responsibilities and tasks, hardware (for example,  
laptop or desktop, processor speed, monitor resolution), environment  
(for example, home, shared office, private office, shared public  
terminal), software (for example, operating system, browser version),  
computer experience, and Web experience (for example, do they
