This informative podcast aims to address the critique that comics are not inclusive to visually impaired readers. This format was chosen to be accessible to visually impaired readers, but also to show non-visually impaired readers an alternative information delivery method. This aids in giving listeners specific examples in which they can attempt to relate to visually impaired comic readers and understand our claims. The podcast explores three of the main methods that are currently in use to make comics more accessible. These include audio comics, tactile comics, and digital comics. The challenges of accessibility, where to find comics for visually impaired readers, and creators that are embracing new technology in their creation of comics are also examined.


This podcast was submitted in July 2021 as part of the Comics Naysayers Response assignment for LIS 9312 - Exploring & Understanding Comics in Libraries.
