I'd suggest engaging the faculty about the purpose of this required reading. Perhaps an alternative book may be assigned to achieve the same learning objectives. If the learning objective is to examine the layout of a graphic novel, you might have to put it through a tactile printer rather than transcribing the words.

Hi all,

Has anyone had to work with graphic novels? We have a required textbook that is a graphic novel and a blind student who needs to read it. I’ve asked the publisher and they say there is not even a separate pdf, it’s all drawn. I hate to rewrite the entire book but it looks like that is what its coming down to. Bookshare says they don’t have the resources. Suggestions anyone? Has anyone done this already? The book, by the way, is THE COMPLETE PERSEPOLIS by Marjane Satrapi ISBN: 9780375714832
