Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Human testers should always be persons with disabilities
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In the organizational section, it is stipulated that “some WCAG 2.0 success criteria require human testers for part or all of the test”. Inclusion Europe would like to emphasize that those human testers must always be people with different kinds of disabilities themselves.

Proposed Change:
To change the text of the second paragraph of the point “Success Criteria” under “Organization of the WCAG 2.0 document as follows:



“All WCAG 2.0 success criteria are written to be testable. While some can be tested by computer programs, others require human testers for part or all of the test. Human testers must always be persons with disabilities themselves.”
