Many people who are blind or have low vision do not have independent access to comic books due to their visual nature, the Comics for All project intends to change that. The idea sprang from the concept of audio description because if people can do that for movies, why not graphic novels and comics as well.
This combination has everything you would expect from a comic: an engaging story line, characters to root for, and stunning graphics but combined with screen reader accessibility of the text to allow everyone to be able to interact with the same comic.
The Sophian Dogs follows three lovable Labradors as they travel around the world and even to outer space. These dogs are super intelligent, able to speak with human colleagues, and have increased dexterity to allow them to complete tasks most dogs couldn t, but sometimes they still find people brushing them off despite their abilities because they are dogs. These similarities allow readers to see the parallels between very capable dogs and humans with disabilities allowing for growth in self-advocacy skills. The dogs also show their interest in using smell, taste, hearing, and touch to investigate the world around them and complete their complex missions.

Hi! We have similar project, for italian blinds! I have an organization, named DramaBooks (https://www.dramabooks.it), that makes dramatized books; we would create VoiceComics, comics with audiodescription for blinds. I'm blind, obviously.
