Hi John F,

+ 1
I agree to abstracting to other forms of visual communication, and to insisting on the understandability part. Thank you for the explanation.

Hi John,

Not only readable, but *understandable*, and this might also include non-text content such as complex graphics (charts etc.) or in a non-related (yet related) way, icons (especially custom icons), although I think in both of those scenarios there are already existing WCAG SC. Still, abstracting away from "text only" to include other forms of visual communication (and insisting on the understandability part) is worthy of this minor change.

+1 in support.
