Hello all,While reading document Understanding Web browsing at:
While reading  the document : understanding  web browsing at
I have one comment on the structure of the document.
The heading "page content" is located after the introduction.
however, the first link of the content is "introduction" that the reader 
has just read.
So the suggestion wouldb e to move page contents before the introduction.
2. Section : Hearing, feeling, and seeing
Typo: content can be presnentend instead of presented.
3. In examples of content format, audio description:
narrations to describes important visual details in a video
should be: narrations that describe important visual details in a video
or: narrations to describe important visual details in a video
4. In examples of assistive technologies :
screen reader: it stands  that screen reader software communicates 
information to text-to-speech or braille. I would suggest to add and/or 
braille, as some people use both together.
5. voice browser: in some voice browsers, such as HPR, there was also an 
ability to serve as e-mail client.
6. In examples of content presentation:
Screen magnification, typo: "Some people use maginification lenses, ", 
write magnification.
7. In sign language: write dialects instead of dialetcs,.
8. In navigating and finding content:
There is a typo in sitemap  that is written sitmaps.
While reading the list of  examples for what people are or are not, I do 
not understand what is meant with: some people are Not using 
hierarchical navigation
In examples of assistive technologies, I do not understand what 
speed-dial mean? Is it jargon or common English word?
In "skip links": I do not know where this should be mentionned in the 
resource, but many people usually  hide  skip links to the ordinary 
user. Those links are only read by screen readers, or they are displayed 
when press the tab key. This does not help the users with motor 
disabilities that need skip links. Do you think this should be 
mentionned somewhere?
That's all for this page.
