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

I've done some more tweaks based on the previous EOWG discussion and on 
other feedback received. Find below a description of these changes:

# Introduction
  - Editorial tweaks to better caution the reader that these are just a 
few examples and by no means an exhaustive listing.

# Scenario 2: Reporter with repetitive stress injury
  - Paragraph 4 has been split out, and describes keyboard accessibility 
in more detail (especially skip-links and other shortcut mechanisms).

# Scenario 3: Online student who is deaf
  - Ms. Martinez is hard of hearing rather than deaf to better reflect 
the different types of hearing disabilities.

# Scenario 4: Accountant with blindness
  - Ms. Laitinen now uses a virtual learning environment to train staff 
at her company.

# Scenario 5: Classroom student with dyslexia
  - Last paragraph has been split out into two, and the former further 
describes the benefits of accessible online libraries.

# Scenario 8: Teenager with deaf-blindness
  - Paragraph 4 now describes how Ms. Kaseem uses GPS and location based 
services on her mobile phone.
  - Paragraph 5 now describes the issue of text not wrapping when it is 
enlarged in some formats.

Thank you for your comments, more thoughts and feedback welcome.
