Blind Accessible Comics

My interest in the accessibility of information visualisations occasionally leads me into the rather niche topic of accessible comics. Comics and graphic novels share a lot of the accessibility challenges information visualisations have (content that is by definition first and foremost visual), hence the approaches to solving the challenge could cross-pollinate.

This resource by Nick Sousanis, comics artist and educator, as well as professor of Humanities & Liberal Studies at San Francisco State University, is a comprehensive list of resources on accessible comics – specifically for blind and low vision readers.

I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
