Hi Shawn,

Re: http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php

Just a few small things I picked up for editor's consideration:

# anchors
Some <p>s have them, but not all. Might be good to add to all.

# Arrange for good visibility of the speaker and interpreters.
Consider "bright sunlight or flashing light."
 > "bright sunlight or flashing lights."
Also, should we mention 'flickering' light too?

# Provide material ahead of time, if requested.
Consider "More about _provide accessible material_ is above"
 > "More about _providing accessible material_ is above" for improved 
readability (even though the link won't match precisely).
Or maybe just "See _provide accessible material_ above" as you have 
later on.

# Use multiple communication methods for different learning styles.
Consider "Some people can better understand verbal information"
 > "Some people can understand verbal information better"

# Use an easy-to-read font face.
Consider "Avoid fancy fonts that are difficult to read"
 > "Avoid fancy fonts as these can be difficult to read"

# http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php#usemic
Consider "people using ALD/hearing loop and"
 > "people using ALD/hearing loops and"
(yes, I know there will be just one loop, so not quite sure about this 

# http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php#visuals
Consider "just means that you cover the visual information"
 > "just means that you cover all the visual information"

# Describe other visual information.
I think ellipses (...) should have a space before as well as after.

# http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php#audience
Consider "Some times you won't know whether"
 > "Sometimes you won't know whether"

Otherwise, looking very good.
