Re: CFC - Standing permission to publish Working Drafts of COGA Gap Analysis


Here are a few trivialities I noticed with this version:

One of the bullets underneath the Introduction is repeated twice.

The material covered in Figure 1 (which is captioned "Figure 1 Figure 1" 
BTW) does not appear to reference support from user agents and assistive 
technologies (i.e., UAAG and ATAG). You may want to incorporate such 
considerations into the preceding section, as this was a common theme in 
some discussions.

Some typos (flagged up to
"themes though the techniques" should be "themes through the techniques" ?
"design patters" should be "patterns"
"easier then working" should be "easier than working"
"individuals user needs" should be "individual user needs" 
"can not learn easily " should be "cannot easily learn"
"suites their personal needs" should be "suits their personal needs"

A couple of suggestions:
"Making breadcrumbs clickable can also help the user undo mistakes" might 
be clearer as "...undo navigation missteps"
"Use a clear structure with easy to follow sections short paragraphs 
manageable chunks" needs, hyphens, commas and rewording. Perhaps: "Use a 
clear structure with easy-to-follow sections, and use short paragraphs to 
create manageable chunks of content"  ?
"Selection a base to immediately provided useful settings across a wide 
range of products and services as a starting point." This needs attention

Subject:        CFC - Standing permission to publish Working Drafts of 
COGA Gap  Analysis

Call For Consensus — ends Monday February 5th at 12:30pm Boston time.
The AGWG discussed a decision to grant standing permission for the COGA 
Task Force to publish updated working drafts of their Gap Analysis.
The First Public Working Draft (FPWD) of their Gap Analysis is available 

Please note there is a concurrent CfC on this same question in the 
Accessible Platform Architectures Working Group (APA WG). Members of both 
groups are asked to respond on both CfCs.
Call minutes:

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not 
been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not 
being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before 
the CfC deadline.
