Hi,

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

Based on some feedback so far, please find below a log of some of the 
changes made to the Scenarios page (please refresh your browser cache):


# Scenario 3: Online student who is deaf

- Previous text: "The university had the audio lectures transcribed and 
made this information available through their website along with audio 
files. For multimedia presentations, the university provided captioning 
of the audio for students with hearing disabilities and textual 
descriptions of the video content for students with visual disabilities. 
Ms. Martinez uses a media player that synchronizes the captions with the 
audio in such multimedia presentations, to better understand the context 
of what is being said."

- Current text: "The university had the audio-only lectures (no video) 
transcribed and made these transcripts available through their website 
along with audio files. For multimedia presentations that included video 
and audio, the university provided captioning of the audio. Ms. Martinez 
uses a media player that displays these captions under the video and 
synchronized with what is being said. This way she can better understand 
the context of what is being said in real-time."


# Scenario 6: Retiree with several aging-related conditions

- Previous text: "Mr. Yunus has difficulty reading small text and 
clicking on small links or form elements. His daughter gave him a 
specialized mouse that compensates hand trembling and showed him how to 
enlarge the text on websites using the web browser settings. Enlarging 
the text makes reading it and clicking links easier. He prefers to 
enlarge the text only rather than the entire web page, since enlarging 
the entire web page distorts the images and forces him to scroll 
horizontally to read some of the text. Besides the difficulty in using a 
mouse, it is also difficult for him to concentrate on scrolling and 
reading a sentence at the same time."

- Current text: "Mr. Yunus has difficulty reading small text and 
clicking on small links or form elements. His daughter gave him a 
specialized mouse that compensates hand trembling and showed him how to 
enlarge the text on websites using the web browser settings, since 
enlarging makes reading text and clicking links easier. His web browser 
has a zoom function that enlarges the entire page and a text enlarging 
setting that only increases the text size. He prefers to enlarge the 
text only rather than the entire web page, since enlarging the entire 
web page distorts the images and forces him to scroll horizontally to 
read some of the text. Besides the difficulty in using a mouse, it is 
also difficult for him to concentrate on scrolling and reading a 
sentence at the same time."


# Scenario 8: Teenager with deaf-blindness

- Previous text: "Ms. Kaseem uses the Web to find new restaurants to go 
to with friends and classmates. She is deaf and recently acquired tunnel 
vision so that she can only see small portions of a screen."

- Current text: "Ms. Kaseem uses the Web to find new restaurants to go 
to with friends and classmates. She is deaf and recently acquired low 
vision so that she can only see small portions of a screen."


Keep the comments coming!
