Hello Shawn and all,
I have some short comments on easy checks but I don't know where to add 
them on the wiki.
1. In page title, checkin with WAT, another quick way to check page 
title, is to go to doc information, page information. the WAT opens a 
new window showing the page title, page url, number of links...
With the keyboard press ctrl+alt+9, arrow keys to doc info, enter to 
select this menu item and they enter on page info.

2. In section "Heading markup in the page:" with the WAT, I think there 
is an error with the keyboard method.
Actual text: "2.In the toolbar, select "Structure", then "Headings". Or, 
with the keyboard: Ctrl+Alt+6, then down arrow to "Heading structure"."
I think heading and heading structure are two different things so that 
the text should be:
"2.In the toolbar, select "Structure", then "Headings". Or, with the 
keyboard: Ctrl+Alt+6, then down arrow to "Headings""

3. In contrast ratio, keyboard shortcuts with the WAT:
In the toolbar, select Color > Juicy Studios Luminosity Analyser.
or, with the keyboard: ctrl+alt+5, then down arrow to Juicy Studios 
Luminosity Analyser.
"Turn off color:
◦In the toolbar, select Color > Grey Scale
or, with the keyboard: ctrl+alt+5, then down arrow to Grey Scale.

4. In "zoom", when we evaluate the page, we recommend to press Ctrl+ 
(the control key and the + key at the same time) 6 times which would 
better correspond to 200% according to our calculations.
5. In keyboard:
"Check that after you tab into a drop-down box, you can use the arrow 
keys to move through all the options. (A common problem for drop-downs 
used for navigation is that as soon as you arrow down, it selects the 
first item in the list and changes pages, and does not let you get to 
other items in the list.)"
I have a question a vocabulary: do you say drop down list or drop down 
box? In the first part of this section, you use drop down list and 
further, drop down box.
Sometimes, it can be helpful to popen a drop down list with alt+down 
arrow key, but I am not sure if it works without a screen reader.
Talking to you at today's conference
Best
Sylvie
