Dear EOWG colleagues,

At the 20 April EOWG teleconference we agreed to include summaries at the top of most EOWG resources. [1]
* For some resources we already had summaries.
* For some resources, I put the existing introduction text into a Summary box, with no edits.
* For some, I made non-substantive copy edits.
* A couple have yet to be done. I added GitHub issues for those.

The summary changes are in GitHub versions for now. We plan to push them to w3.org/WAI/beta with other revisions hopefully this week (and replace the main website with the redesign in May).

The following summaries have minor wording tweaks:
* https://w3c.github.io/wai-people-use-web/people-use-web/user-stories/
* https://w3c.github.io/wai-people-use-web/people-use-web/abilities-barriers/
* https://w3c.github.io/wai-people-use-web/people-use-web/tools-techniques/
* https://w3c.github.io/wai-accessibility-principles/fundamentals/accessibility-principles/
* https://w3c.github.io/wai-older-users/older-users/literature/
Changes (aka "diffs") are below. [2]

This e-mail is an invitation for EOWG to review the changes. Since they are minor copyedits, we do not plan to put them on a survey. If you have any concerns or suggestions, please feel free to open GitHub issues (or if you're not comfortable with GitHub, you can send e-mail).

Thanks,
~Shawn, Sharron, Brent

(Note that the context of this page will change with the new site. It is now up a level, and only includes links to the stories, not the other pages.)
Was:
"
This page introduces some of the web accessibility requirements for websites, web applications, browsers, and other tools. It provides references to the international standards from W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), which include considerations for the broad diversity of web users and ways people use the Web.

Summary is new. Edited page now includes the impact and prevalence of ageing and disability (which old page did not).
