In reviewing the intro in noticed the USER NEEDS Section seemed to need
a sentence to complete the thought.

It currently says:

User needs
Here are a few scenarios, by no means an exhaustive list of the
variations and types of disabilities and needs:

Someone who cannot hear will want see the information.
Someone who cannot see will want to hear or touch the information.
Someone who does not have the strength to move quickly or easily will
want to use as little movement as possible to see or hear or feel the
information.
Someone who does not read well may want to hear the information and see
words highlighted as they are read.
For more in-depth scenarios, please read "How People with Disabilities
Use the Web".


[end of quote form WCAG 2.0]

I think we should add a sentence that reads:
" If a page is designed properly then uses can use special technologies
to read the page aloud in speech or present it in braille,etc. "
to complete the thought.

 The sentence would go right before the "for more info"
as it is now, it sounds a bit like the page itself should do all that.
I wouldn’t add more since the link goes into all the detail.  But a
short one sentence add would put them on the right track.

Thoughts?
