 * ( ) I abstain (not vote)





---------------------------------
General comments on the resource suite as a whole
----


Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
COMMENT #1:

priority: [editor's discretion]

location: "Involving Users Effectively" section, first sentence

current wording: "A first step in evaluating Web accessibility is
conducting a preliminary review of the Web site..."

suggested revision: "A first step in evaluating Web accessibility is
conducting at least a preliminary review of the Web site..."

rationale: The more evaluation is done in advance (possibly a full
conformance evaluation), the better it is.


COMMENT #2:

priority: [list for next revision]

location: "Introduction" section, second paragraph

current wording: example of screen reader user

suggested revision: example of screen magnification

rationale: screen readers are mentioned elsewhere in the document (for
example in "Involving Users Effectively") and often not an obvious AT to
Web developers.


COMMENT #3:

priority: [editor's discretion]

location: "Terminology and Notes"

suggested revision: add screen magnifiers

rationale: significantly impacts Web site evaluations


COMMENT #4:

priority: [editor's discretion]

location "Introduction" section, second paragraph

current wording: in-page link of "screen reader"

suggested revision: make "screen reader" (and other ATs) a real item in
the "Terminology and Notes" section.

rationale: on a printed copy, one does not realize that this is indeed an
in-page link but that it may link to an external resource. Also, I think
ATs really deserve to be explained more in-depth though not sure if this
is the right document for that (or if were better put in "How People with
Disabilties Use the Web" for example).


COMMENT #5:

I really like the document and the refreshing style of writing. Also, it
is a very needed resource and complements the suit very well. Thanks!
