Title Blind readers and comics : reflecting on comics' storytelling from a different perspective
Author Dittmar, Jakob
Date 2019
English abstract
This paper discusses comics for the Blind, based on the example of life by Philipp Meyer. It looks into the potential and the restrictions of sequential pictorial storytelling that is accessible for blind readers. Special attention is given to the elements of comics' narratives and the technical background of tactile text and image representation. Due to the process of giving information in tactile comics, these present an extreme challenge for readers who have been born blind, while readers that have grown blind later in life seem able to refer the elements of spatially dispersed information (images) to their memory of visual information.
