Hi

Are there any sites or books or papers which contain any information about
the effects on accessibility by making language on web sites simpler.  For
example, less jargon and slang can improve things for those without Eng as a
first language, and also those with limited education, the deaf, blind and
so on.  Is this concept simply taken as read, or are there any studies on
it?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Jo
