Hi Nick,

Thank you for adding the use case.

Many of the points raised here are covered by accessibility best practices. For example, providing text-based image descriptions is clearly outlined in WCAG [1].

I’m wondering if you are aiming to demonstrate the interplay of accessibility and user stylesheets? If so, I think it would be helpful to highlight the role of the user.

Dear Nick,

I’ve added 2 lines in Dyslexia.
I had a dyslexic intern last year who implemented that in an experimental EPUB for dyslexic people.

Thank you.  I've reached out to a few charities for people with disabilities, as well as people I know that have special needs and that was what lead me to these, but if anyone can contribute - even with a short use-case, i'm happy to fill it out more.  I'll be expanding on these over the next week.

A few weeks ago I committed to getting a User Stylesheets Use-Case document.  I would greatly appreciate any help (probably only 10 minutes of someone's time) in getting a proper wiki page set up for this, but here is my start:

User-Controlled Style Override Use Cases

The goal of this document is to outline the use-cases where a user would want to over-ride or augment the user-agent and site-specific stylesheets.

Disabilities and their needs:

Visually Impaired -
* Increase font size of body content
* Highlight Menu Options
* Identify menu items and body content to allow for text-to-speech
* Text provided for image-based menus
* Consideration for non-mouse non-touch screen navigation

Dyslexia -
* Ability to over-ride readable fonts (not icon fonts)
Color Blind
* Ability to change background & font colors to increase visibility
Specific to Reading/Long-form
* Ability to customize link/reference styling to make more obvious.
* Target and Relative font size (all fonts +2em VS all fonts pegged at 36px)
