Hi Loretta,

Here are my comments for the responses from WCAG WG.

> [1] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0031.html

This is not my comment, right? :-)

> [2] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0032.html

OK.

> [3] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0033.html

WCAG WG should add the response to the Understanding document:
---
Symbols could apply to 'anything that represents something else' See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbol . It is not limited to graphic
symbols for people with developmental disorders and speech
comprehension difficulties.
---
Wihout this, the readers could misunderstand that "symbols" means
"graphic symbols for people with developmental disorders and speech
comprehension difficulties. Actually JIS working group misunderstood
it and was confused.

> [4] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0034.html

OK. This explanation should be included in the Understanding document.
---
This means "indicating that something will happen or has already
happened". For example, using color to indicate that a link will open
in a new window or that a database entry been updated successfully.
"Prompting a response" refers to a use of color that would indicate
that the user should do something. For example, a Web page could use
highlighting on form fields to indicate that a required field had been
left blank.
---
Non-English speaking readers could misunderstand what it means.

> [5] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0035.html

OK.

> [6] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0036.html

It is still hard to understand what "glyph" includes. Visual examples
of "glyph" would help the readers to understand it, especially for
non-English speaking readers.

Please see:
http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/typespacing/a/zxfleading_img.htm

The blue shows "line spacing" or "leading". Am I correct?

> [8] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0038.html

In the case of using CSS, what the author have to do is to set
"line-height:150%".
Am I correct?

> [9] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0039.html

OK.

> [10] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0040.html

OK.
"Timing" has been a part of Japanese language and doesn't mean "time limit".
Now we can understand what this note means.

> [11] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0041.html

OK.

> [12] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0042.html

OK. It became understandable and translatable.

> [13] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0043.html

OK.

> [14] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0044.html

OK.

> [15] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0045.html

Let me confirm.
Conformance claim at Level AA is encouraged to include the list of
success criteria at Level AAA the site already met. Am I correct?

> [16] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0046.html

OK.

> [17] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Aug/0047.html

OK.
Are all of the words in glossary used in the same meaning? If so, no problem.
We thought that the word "process" in SC 2.2.2 Note 3 was different
from the "process" in other sections, but we were not sure and it was
very confusing for us to translate the documents. For translation, all
words in glossary used in the document should link to the definition
in glossary. It allows us to translate much easier.

> [18] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0004.html

OK.

> [19] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0005.html

OK.

> [20] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0006.html

OK.

> [21] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0007.html

OK.

> [22] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0008.html

OK.

> [23] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0010.html

OK.

> [24] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0011.html

OK.

> [25] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0012.html

OK.

> [26] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0032.html

OK.
JIS working group just started to find the equivalent font size for
the Japanese characters.
This Note 5 is fine with JIS working group. We'll find and add the
size to the new version of  JIS next year.

> [27] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0037.html

OK.

> [28] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2008Oct/0042.html

OK.
The following information should be added to the Understanding document.
Without this, nobody can find the equivalent font size for Chinese,
Korean, or any other languages than the alphabetical language like
English.
---
The American Printing House for the Blind publishes "The American
Printing House for the Blind Guidelines for Large Printing"
<http://www.aph.org/edresearch/lpguide.htm>
This is where the 18 point minimum comes from.

The Library of Congress publishes "National Library Service for the
Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), The Library of Congress
Guidelines for Large Print"
<http://www.loc.gov/nls/reference/circulars/largeprint.html>. This is
where the 14 point minimum comes from.

That's all. Thanks.
