Interesting to see the same conversations occurring in multiple standards
activities at the same time.
Animated progress indicators take different forms. Those that simply show
progress are not a problem. Some show animations (activity that simply
shows that the computer hasn't crashed completely (thought they can continue
to animate after many types of crashes)). These are a distraction problem
for people - even if they don't affect AT. Those with attention problems
would find it very beneficial to turn off the animation that is not progress
