I wouldn't add the sentence as proposed, since it seems a whole different
style. But I agree that we should be more clear about the fact that the
reference describes in more detail both some example problems and some
example solutions. I would edit the final sentence that is there, along the
lines of

"For some more complete examples of problems people can face, and how they
can be solved, please read..."

  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".

  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.
