I read the modification that where made and I find it to be a good job.
I especially read the section below that is important and that is well 
written. http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/bcase/soc.html#of

I however have some comments.  It should be written somewhere that scrolling 
menu must be avoided for seniors. 
I think it is linked to the following guideline :
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#time-limits-pause
And that is contained in this section :
"text [and other elements that do not distract users through movement or cause 
seizures] {that do not blink or move} "

I could also be explicitely added in the mouse difficulty section.

A section about memory and concentration problems could be added.
The navigation of seniors is helped by the following guidelines :
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#navigation-mechanisms-mult-loc
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#navigation-mechanisms-descriptive
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#navigation-mechanisms-location


These are the only ameliorations I suggest.

Tomorrow, it won't be possible for me to attend the reunion. 
A special activity takes place in my university. 


Regrets


Isabelle
