Hello Shawn and all,
Like Anna and William, I was also surprised that we need an introduction 
to the document "how people with disabilities use the Web" as this 
document is clear as itself. I think people do not need an introduction 
on how to read this document but they need to know how people with 
disabilities use the Web. When people see a disabled person using the 
Web, they are often surprised that this is possible.
But I understand your explanations regarding the need for more work 
(several months) to update the document by WAI-AGE and to have a way to 
already reference the document.
In section "different disabilities", the word "disability" is used in 7 
of the 8 cases, the second occurence uses the word "impairment" instead. 
I wonder if the word impairment is the same as disability, or what is 
the difference between them. Why not harmonise and use disability for 
each occurence?
In this introduction, it may be useful to better explain why this 
document should be updated and approximately when.
Best
Sylvie
