Issues Pertaining to Usability

There are several aspects of regulations.gov that could be improved. First, although the website offers links to the pertinent portions of the NPRM, the cite lacks a plain language summary of the rules. It is conceivable that users will not find the text of the NRPM helpful in clarifying questions they may have about a proposed rule. Offering a plain language summary, in addition to the NPRM, could enhance both user accessibility and the quality of comments posted. Second, it is important to ensure that links websites are compatible with different browsers, otherwise those seeking to comment may be unable to access important additional information
