Hi Sailesh, sort of, Linearise is intended to allow users to override the layout, lineraising it to one column and fitting within the viewport.

There are several ways of accomplishing that, including simply removing CSS, or using an extension/script to linearise the page whilst retaining some styling. (Example [1])

It is important to understand the different between magnification and zoom+reflow. Magnification leads to lots of horizontal scrolling, which makes reading several magnitudes harder (Wayne has been researching this.)

So necessary AT in this scenario is a script or extension to adapt the page layout.

It hasn't been, according to pretty much everyone on the LVTF!

Once the principle (i.e. the SC) is in place, there is work to do during the draft stages to test with scripts and flesh out the techniques & failures.

I'm expecting complications like flexbox ordering (a programatic order different from source order) to come into play.
