English question and this is possibly a British/Canadian/Australian English versus US English thought - (today's meeting - US English is the official WCAG language)

" they are at fault for making mistakes"
Is this the same as saying  " they are at fault when making mistakes"?

Subject: Content Usable Proposed Change to Section 7


Within section 7, it states:

Ensure the person does not feel like they are at fault for making mistakes; this is a likely scenario for people with cognitive impairments."

I suggest changing it to the following to emphasize the need for usability/UX professionals who already consider this some in their test design:

Ensure the person does not feel like they are at fault for making mistakes. While this is always important during usability testing, this scenario  is even more likely for people with cognitive impairments.
Please respond to the group with your thoughts on the change.
Thank you,
