Just wanted to share a nice example of an easy to read version for the ISAAC conference<https://www.isaac-online.org/english/conference-2016/code-of-conduct/> code of conduct:

*         Full format<https://www.isaac-online.org/english/conference-2016/code-of-conduct/>

*         Easy format (PDF)<https://www.isaac-online.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/Final-Easy-English-ISAAC-CoC.pdf>
I didn't test it with a screenreader, so for screen reader users, the images are symbols to represent the text they stand beside (something an individual who communicates through symbols or symbols and words might use).
