PostScript: A Series on Accessibility, Disability, and Digital Publishing

PostScript is an online series on accessibility, disability, and digital publishing, hosted by Public Access. It will connect artists, researchers, writers, academics, students, publishers, and distributors from around the world who work in publishing and have a stake in, focus on, or interest in issues related to disability and accessibility. By gathering and fostering international connections, Public Access will encourage the development of networks and knowledge sharing.

The name of our event, “PostScript,” simultaneously references a page description language used in publishing applications, the historical problem of seeing accessibility as an “add-on” or afterthought, and the notion that we have increasing opportunities to expand upon the print medium into new modes of accessibility in the digital.

For PostScript, “publishing” includes traditional and nontraditional forms of publishing, emerging forms of storytelling (such as VR/AR/XR), and gaming.

The sessions will be divided into four main categories:

  • Publishing (topics related to publishing professionals);
  • Artists and Writers (topics relating to disabled artists and writers);
  • Contexts (broader contextual discussions); and
  • Best Practices (practical demos and how-to’s).

We have commissioned four artists to create work on the broad themes of accessibility, disability, and digital publishing through an open call in partnership with Tangled Arts + Disability. Click here to visit Tangled Arts + Disability’s website: https://tangledarts.org
