Dear anthony ,

Thank you for your comments on the 2006 Last Call Working Draft of the
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-WCAG20-20060427/). We appreciate the
interest that you have taken in these guidelines.

We apologize for the delay in getting back to you. We received many
constructive comments, and sometimes addressing one issue would cause
us to revise wording covered by an earlier issue. We therefore waited
until all comments had been addressed before responding to commenters.

This message contains the comments you submitted and the resolutions
to your comments. Each comment includes a link to the archived copy of
your original comment on
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/, and may
also include links to the relevant changes in the updated WCAG 2.0
Public Working Draft at http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/.

PLEASE REVIEW the decisions  for the following comments and reply to
us by 7 June at public-comments-WCAG20@w3.org to say whether you are
satisfied with the decision taken. Note that this list is publicly
archived.

We also welcome your comments on the rest of the updated WCAG 2.0
Public Working Draft by 29 June 2007. We have revised the guidelines
and the accompanying documents substantially. A detailed summary of
issues, revisions, and rationales for changes is at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2007/05/change-summary.html . Please see
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ for more information about the current review.

Thank you,

Loretta Guarino Reid, WCAG WG Co-Chair

On behalf of the WCAG Working Group

(Issue ID: LC-525)

Item Number: Important New Terms Used in WCAG 2.0
Part of Item:
Comment Type: GE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):

Very simple really; WCAG guidelines language is too technical and very
hard to follow, never mind tweaking a web page to adhere to these
standards, if you want universality you should write in a accessible
language.

Proposed Change:

use common understandable language for 2.0!

----------------------------
Response from Working Group:
----------------------------

We understand that the language is technical in places.  We have tried
to make it as easy to read as possible while still being technology
independent and accurate.  It is very hard.  We have made some changes
again in response to last call comments.  Suggestions are always
welcome.
