I have made  the  Matthew's  requested changes except for the following:

-The phrase "disabled person" is still found in 1 (a)

I'm not sure how to rephrase it, or what was agreed on.

My turn for nitpicks ...

The phrase "disabled person" is still found in 1 (a)

"unix" in 1 (e) should be capitalised as "Unix"

1 (f) has "Users who are persons with disabilities" which should perhaps
be "Users with disabilities"

2b 8. InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards
should probably have its acronym (INCITS) placed after it, otherwise the
InterCapping looks a little odd.

2b 9. "System Administrators who are themselves persons with
disabilities" could perhaps be reworded more neatly as "System
Administrators who have disabilities"?

And the title "FSG102 Proposed Accessibility Worgroup - Draft" is
missing a "k".

Sorry to be late, but I vote Yes.
