Here's another draft incorporating most of Sharon's suggested language:
5.) Accessible Feature Configuration
Users who are persons with disabilities should have accessible applications and tools to assist them with configuring their system user
interfaces to best advantage.
Quite often the user is left trying to configure thier own system, because
technical support staff does not have sufficient knowledge about the
available configuration options. However, most of the information these
users need can be documented and exposed in a systematic manner.
Scripted wizards and best practices documentation need to be developed to facilitate the end user by providing easy to use tools and clear,
non-technical documentation for creating appropriate configurations on individual workstations. In addition, users whose needs may vary from day to day
should have the ability to easily select an alternative configuration, as their needs change during system use.
