Mr Yunus: There is nothing related to his mild short-term memory loss
disability. Should we add on related-browsing problems for him, or just
drop the mild short-term memory loss problem altogether?

Ms. Kaseem: Most people don't know what being legally blind means.
Therefore, it might be confusing for people to read that she can see small
portions of the screen as a blind person. I would suggest changing "she is
deaf and recently became legally blind too" by "she is deaf and recently
lost most of her sight" (or something like that) instead. It also seems
unlikely yto me that she would be using a braille display if she only
recently became legally blind, as braille is not something one learns
overnight. I have yet to see someone who uses screen magnification software
also use a braille keyboard. In order to make this scenario more plausible,
I'd suggest turning this around by saying she has had really poor sight
from birth and has recently become deaf.

Nothing to comment, besides that this is the most comprehensive
interpretation of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines I've seen to date. Awesome job!
