Re: resources on writing accessible user guides

In tickets to developers (I know, they think and speak different than regular users), I use the word "actived" and "activated" a lot.

However if I didn't use words like "click", none of my non-technical family members would really follow instructions very well. My family thinks they're "clicking" on buttons when they smoosh their fingers against their phone screens.

As far as "look" and "see", I haven't met a blind person yet who doesn't "watch" movies or "sees" a TV show. I'm sure they're out there, and my personal bubble is definitely more the nerds than people like my family, but I'm just piling on to agree with Pat.
