Hi all,

And why not simply "Other versions" or something similar? Maybe you can 
have something like a bridge page that lets the user to choose certain 
aspects, such as preferred layout, font-family, font-size, background 
and foreground colors and, in addition, alternative content for those 
contents that are not WCAG-compliant. This way nobody will feel that 
they are taken apart and we can avoid the negative nuance of "basic", 
"simplified" and so on.

My 2 cents,
