Lisa's rectification

whilst thoroughly concurring with Lisa's rectification of the text,  
it does appear lengthy and circuitous.

It's quite evident that WCAG1 and WCAG2 largely ignore the needs of  
this large group, when compared with the provision for physical,  
visual or equipment assistance.

A simple short sentence to this effect would better meet their needs,  
and provide ready evidence of intent.

Unfortunately the fact that W3C technical specifications continue to  
be created without reference to their needs, means that significant  
errata are now having to be retrospectively incorporated. Currently  
this is being enactioned* outside either the WAI, WCAG or P&F WGs  
which is regrettable, and no doubt leading to further delays.

Although some of the accessibility issues of people with cognitive,
language, and learning disabilities are addressed by WCAG 2.0, either
directly or through assistive technologies, the WCAG 2.0 guidelines  
do not
address many areas of need for people with these disabilities. There  
is a
need for more research and development in this important area by the  
group and additional success criteria and techniques may be added to  
versions of this document.
