Hi everyone,

Firstly my apologies for not being involved more in the discussions, my time zone is proving a bit challenging to get involved in the teleconferences.

Just wanted to give some feedback on the scenarios page.  It's a great document and I think it will be very useful.

The only scenario that I would consider changing is Scenario 3.  The way it currently reads t me suggests that access is a complicated process, especially the need for transcript and multimedia synchronisation.

The reason why this is particularly relevant for us at the moment is that the Australian government last week finally set a target date to move to WCAG 2.0: the first time they've ever set a target date for anything IT access-related, and I suspect they'll be looking to this document to see how best to meet the needs of people with disabilities.  I'd prefer in this scenario to see the university produce all multimedia materials with closed captions, which in turn provides great access to a deaf student.

Subject: [For review] Scenarios page in How People with Disabilities Use the Web


Ref: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/PWD-Use-Web/2009/scenarios>

The "Scenarios" page of "How People with Disabilities Use the Web" has
been updated and is ready for your review. Please focus on these types
of questions for this round of reviewing:

- are the types of disabilities, browsing methods, and accessibility
provisions outlined in the scenarios sufficiently illustrative?

- is each scenario informative for web developers, yet equally easy to
follow for any other reader who is new to web accessibility?

- is the cross-linking to other pages in this resource sufficiently
clear and easy to understand? (note: not all the links work yet)

Note: the initial version of each scenario is linked from the bottom of
each scenario, in case you want to compare back with previous work. You
can also find a version with notes and suggestions from the WAI-AGE TF:
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/PWD-Use-Web/2009/Overview-bak>

Reminder: feel free to send comments and suggestions that you want to
discuss to the EOWG and WAI-AGE TF mailing lists:
  - WAI-AGE TF <public-wai-age@w3.org>
  - EOWG <w3c-wai-eo@w3.org>

Minor editorial comments that don't need discussion can be sent to:
  - EOWG Editors <wai-eo-editors@w3.org>

Looking forward to further discussion on this resource.
