This is brilliant:

ComicA11y is an experiment that aims to achieve an all-inclusive online comic reading experience. Because comics should be universal.

The demo at comica11y.humaan.com by Paul Spencer is a showcase of various techniques to make a digital comic accessible for all.

Playing around with the toggles underneath the comic strip reveals a range of enhancements that allow to consume the visual storytelling in different ways. The “comic” context aside, this is a powerful demonstration of how visual content can be made more universally accessible by some (progressive) enhancements.
