Summary of Issue: bullet 2, \"checked\", seems unnecessary
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"Checked: Submitted data is checked for input errors before going on to the next step in the process.\"



The concept of checking for errors sounds to me like a common application design tenet, not an accessibility one. Also, why should the app check for errors before moving on to the next step? Would a final screen saying \"there were errors in steps 3 and 5, here are the fields for you to edit\" or similar not work as well?

Proposed Change:
Bullet 2 seems unnecessary, or requires better wording.
