EOWG,

Situations that limit people's (particularly people without disabilities) ability to hear, see, use their hands, concentrate, understand instructions, etc.  including device limitations and environmental limitations   are sometimes called "situational limitations" or "situational disabilities". Please read more about issues with this terminology and share your perspectives in the EOWG wiki page:
	<https://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Situational_terminology>

(That wiki page is editable by participants of the EOWG. If you are not a participate, feel free to reply via e-mail on this EOWG list instead.)

Thanks!

~Shawn
