Silver Prototype Example - Plain Language

The purpose of this prototype is to show how existing WCAG 2.0 guidance could be converted into plain language.

We are interested in your feedback about the use of plain language and the organization of the guidance. Please use the survey in Google forms to guide your feedback. You can also submit your feedback as a Github Issue.
