It takes a given text, and reduces its lexicon to a more accessible reading level

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It makes the preamble of the US constitution more accessible

What we learned

NLP requires further developed API, frameworks, etc.

What's next for Decomplicate

We want to begin to parse clauses in to shorter sentences
