Okay to publish as is. Very well done. Just two suggestions to consider, but leave it up to editor discretion.

Sixth Bullet: "Provide a text transcript from the caption text and the description of visual information so that people who are Deaf-blind *get* the video content." - Not sure I like the work "get." Could something slightly more formal be used here: "can access," etc.

Seventh Bullet: "Provide sign language so that Deaf people whose native language is *sign* get the content in their language." - Don't like the second use of the word "sign." How about... "Provide sign language so that Deaf people whose native language is signing can receive the content in their language."

[editors] "Provide a text transcript from the caption text and the description of visual information so that people who are Deaf-blind get the video content." -- maybe add "Some media players do this automatically"?

[editors] "Provide sign language so that Deaf people whose native language is sign get the content in their language." -- maybe add "where possible" to soften this a little (ie. "Provide sign language where possible" or such)? I know that this is not in-line with the current neutral approach but "provide" kind of sticks out to me.

This is a really good work! only bullet point 3 "Use a media player that supports accessibility" might be problematic as to the best of my knowledge there is no current media player in the market that supports and/or integrates all accessibility services. Maybe a note could be included but I leave it for Editors' discretion.

Shadi Abou-Zahra [lo] "Many people who are Deaf can read text well. They get the audio information from transcripts or captions. Some people prefer sign language." -> "Many people who are Deaf get the audio information from transcripts or captions. Some people prefer sign language." -- the "can read text well" seems a little off IMO.

[med] I find this first page extremely long an overwhelming. I wonder if this should become a real first page of the resource that people could specifically point? Something like "background" or "getting started" or such.
