Re: persona quotes for wcag 2.1

Given that someone with dyslexia is disproportionately likely to be an entrepreneur. I think perpetuating the negative stereotypes is concerning. Heck yes I do find entering details and filling forms hard and I am terrible with addresses but I also hold 2 good degrees and have a reasonably successful career.

Does anyone else find it offensive how wcag documents persona for coga groups tend to do things like bagging groceries?
Of course we do include people with intellectual disabilities but I feel there is a huge disservice in the balance of these persona as they perpetuate the myth that we are not in the target audience for professional or academic content.

Hi Y'all,

I think there are draft persona quotes for all of the WCAG 2.1 SC already.  They are published here:

Let me pull out the COGA SC persona quotes specifically:
1.3.5 Identify Input Purpose (AA)

        *   Persona: Supermarket assistant<> with dyslexia and dyscalculia:

           *   Quote for when it is a problem:
              *   "My address is so complicated. There's lots of numbers and long words. It's hard to type it all without making mistakes."
           *   Quote for when it works well:
              *   "I love websites that can automatically fill it all in for me. Then I don't have to work so hard to get the numbers and spelling right."
              *   Note: This works because the fields use autocomplete.

1.3.6 Identify Purpose (AAA)

        *   Persona: Gamer with language processing disability:

           *   Quote for when it is a problem:
              *   "I have software that changes the words in the navigation into symbols. It doesn't work at all with some websites."
           *   Quote for when it works well:
              *   "It works pretty well with some websites."

2.2.6 Timeouts (AAA)

        *   Persona: School playground aide with cognitive disabilities:

           *   Quote for when it is a problem:
              *   "I was selecting my Employee Benefits and was comparing the different plans. When I went back to select the Health Plan, it had timed out and lost all the information I had already entered."
           *   Quote for when it works well:
              *   "When I started the Employee Benefits app, it told me how many minutes I had to complete the forms."

What do y'all think?
