Hi Shadi,

Thanks so much for your comments. I have tried to addressed all of  
them. Please let me know if you are happy with the following changes:

priority: editor's discretion
location: experience #1 in section perceivable
current wording: "Device is used in poor lighting"
suggested revision: consider using the word "glare"
rationale: I think the term is commonly used in the mobile field.

YY: Proposed change:

"Many screens have limited color palette and color difference is not  
presented. Device is used in poor lighting (for example, outdoors)  
and because of the glare, colors are not clearly perceived."


priority: editor's discretion
location: experience #7 in section perceivable
current wording: "User who is blind or colorblind"
suggested revision: explain impact on colorblind users
rationale: It is not apparent why colorblind users can't perceive  
information in non-text content. Do you mean because they may use  
modified stylesheets or settings? Or because multimedia content  
typically has insufficient color combinations?

YY: Proposed change:

"Blind or color blind users can't perceive content. Color blind users  
often use alternative style-sheets and might not be able to access  
important information encoded in non-text content."


priority: editor's discretion
location: experience #3 in section understandable
current wording: physical properties of mobile devices
suggested revision: add something about a generally different  
behavior between desktop and mobile devices, especially for auto-refresh
rationale: developers may have a different expectation of content  
that "blinks, moves, scrolls or auto-updates" than when it is  
rendered on mobile devices. This is due to the difference in browser  

YY: Proposed change:

"Reduced size of mobile viewport or poor ambient lighting make it  
difficult to see content. Mobile browsers can behave differently to  
Desktop browsers and may increase the cost if an auto-refreshed page  
is being left open or put unnoticed into the background."
