In this paper, we describe a method for predicting the understandability level of inferences with OWL. Specifically, we present a probabilistic model for measuring the understandability of a multiplestep inference based on the measurement of the understandability of individual inference steps. We also present an evaluation study which confirms that our model works relatively well for two-step inferences with OWL. This model has been applied in our research on generating accessible explanations
