Dear Sharron Rush,

Thank you for your comments on the 17 May 2007 Public Working Draft of
the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/). The WCAG Working Group
has reviewed all comments received on the May draft, and will be
publishing an updated Public Working Draft shortly. Before we do that,
we would like to know whether we have understood your comments
correctly, and also whether you are satisfied with our resolutions.

Please review our resolutions for the following comments, and reply to
us by 19 November 2007 at public-comments-wcag20@w3.org to say whether
you are satisfied. Note that this list is publicly archived. Note also
that we are not asking for new issues, nor for an updated review of
the entire document at this time.

Please see below for the text of comments that you submitted and our
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 WCAG 2.0 Editor's
Draft of May-October 2007 at

Thank you for your time reviewing and sending comments. Though we
cannot always do exactly what each commenter requests, all of the
comments are valuable to the development of WCAG 2.0.

Original Comment:

I am
attaching a spreadsheet with extensive suggestions. First and foremost may
I express my deep appreciation for all the work that you have done on the
Guidelines and supporting documents.  It is fine work and I offer these
remarks with the deepest respect.

Response from Working Group:

Thank you for taking the time to comment on WCAG.  A lot of time and effort
has gone into the draft and it has been difficult at times to find the best
language to express the requirements and advice when it needs to apply
across such a wide (and expanding) variety of technologies. We think that,
although not perfect, this draft is a significant advance in the right
direction.  We look forward to new research that is being done on the Web
and on Accessibility that will allow us to go even further in future

Comment 2: mostly editorial suggestions with a strong leaning toward plain

Response from Working Group:

Thank you for your thorough pass through the guidelines and your many
suggestions.  Most all of the items you cited were worded that way for
specific reasons or to address comments from others. In other places
we have additional wording to make the intent or reason clearer where
we have noticed problems.  Often these seem extra - (and were not in
the original version) until the problem kept arising.

 We have included comments to explain these in the attached spreadsheet.
