Making visual comics screen-readable with transcripts
Workshop for comic artists who want to collaborate on creating text-only versions of their online comics to make them more accessible.
“Screen-readable comics” are text-only versions added accessibly to comics for people who surf the web with screen-readers via braille line or audio output. This workshop especially invites artists of comics communicating activism from and for marginalized communities. As a queer and non-binary trans comic artist, communication is very close to my heart.
This online workshop is planned for up to 9 participants. It will last for 2-3 hours. Participants must have a published (short) online comic they want to transcribe. Participants will prepare a first attempt at transcription before the workshop as a basis for collaboration (2-3 panels). The workshop language is English and comics can be in English or German.
The workshop will focus on aspects of transcribing the text and visuals of a comic as well as on the technical requirements for a screen-readable website. It will include work in small groups working on the comic transcripts, and input on the basics of transcription and technical website aspects.
