In my last read through noticed a couple of things, which are minor
enough that I hadn't noticed them before.

   * There is a sentence saying 'Speaker: "How many people make their
websites fully accessible? Please raise your hand... About half raised
their hand."' and early in the document another saying 'your audience
might not be ... move well or at all'. The showing of hands is a
common practice in presentations. Do we need to provide some
information on how to poll the audience in an inclusive and accessible
   * Minor editorial point: missing word 'as' between 'such' and 'a'
in the sentence 'Avoid distracting background, such a bright sunlight
or flashing light.', and should that either be 'Avoid using a
distracting background' or 'Avoid distracting backgrounds'?

It is in good shape for publishing as it is for review.
