Shawn,

Stories of Web users:
1. Both expand all / collapse all links are exposed all the time.
Only one should be exposed depending on current state.

2. Mr. Lee - color blindness:
2.1. Refer to "Related sections within this resource"".
Content under this is marked up  as nested list.
Maybe using h4 might be better. Then use a list under each.

2.2. The related accessibility principles for Mr. Lee mainly relate to
ability to perceive.
I do not see why "Users are helped to avoid and correct mistakes
(Understandable)" is
listed here.
The text in the story too does not support it.
2.3. Maybe color contrast and  absence of focus indicator (SC 2.4.7)
should also be  listed
in the story as issues he has to deal with.
3. Mr. Jones- RSI:
3.1. Necessary to refer to CMS? Seems techy.
3.2. Review use of tense and use of sentences with "would". Also
"re-damage" can do with an  alternative.
e.g. exacerbates  his pain.

4. Student who is deaf:
4.1. Refer to "The university quickly found that it was much easier to
comprehensively
index the  transcribed or captioned audio resources and provide them ..."
Prefix this with a statement that says: "The university discovered
that captioning yielded
other benefits too"

5. About blind accountant:
5.1. Refer to:  Web browser with keyboard support to use websites
without a mouse
Comment: This could mislead some readers.
Does the browser (user agent)  provide this ability or the Web content?

5.2. Refer to: "... organized in tables, which can sometimes be
difficult for non-visual
users  to read"
Better to clarify with : users of screen reading software access the
contents of a single
table cell at a time. Only if the table is properly marked up, the
screen reader can
relate individual data cells with its column and row header cells and
thus provide the
proper context for users.
5.3. Innovations lists  audio descriptions as the first item. No
reference to this in the
story.
If retained, include it just before / after transcripts.

Thanks,
Sailesh Panchang
