Item Number: Guideline 3.1: Make text content readable and understandable
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Provide supplemental plain language summaries
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
For people with intellectual disabilities and other people with reading problems, it is important to provide a summary of the site contents in easy-to-understand form. This summary should not require a reading ability of more than primary education level.

Proposed Change:
Success Criterion 3.1.X Plain Language Summary of site
(Level A)

When a website requires for most of its pages a reading ability more advanced than the primary education level, a summary page that does not require reading ability more advanced than the primary education level, is available as supplemental content. This Plain Language Summary page includes:
- Information about the purpose of the site
- Summary explanations of and links to the 5 most used pages on the site
- Contact information 
The summary page is clearly identified by a non-verbal icon, such as the Easy-to-Read Logo at www.easy-to-read.eu
