Summary of Issue: The parenthetical phrase is confusing
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The parenthetical note in the title “(for example spoken aloud, simpler layout, etc.)” is confusing.  It seems to me that the subsections below 1.3 define “presented in different ways” whereas the parenthetical note (particularly with the “etc.”) leaves room for misinterpretation.  For example, Does different ways mean I need to allow for different reading levels?  I don’t think that is the intent but the parenthetical note could allow for that.

Proposed Change:
Remove the parenthetical phrase.
