Comment Type: general comment
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The National Confederation of Deaf Persons of Spain (CNSE)have requested to us that we support to obtain an improvement in the accessibility for the deaf people. 

Being conscious of the differences between the languages of signs worldwide and the lack of equivalence with the languages spoken in each country, we considered that some reasonable advances by means of the following changes could be included.

Proposed Change:
To add a requirement to offer, always, an alternative in sign language interpretation for certain textual contents. Level 1 (a)

For example: 

- Page of presentation of the website: presentation of the authors, people in charge, objectives of the site, scheme of the content (map of the site). 

- Possible services that are supplied and instructions to make use of such. 

- Possible supplied products and instructions for its handling, acquisition or manipulation, etc. 

- Information on the contact form and steps to follow to clarify doubts, to resolve incidences, to contribute suggestions, etc.
