This workshop will demonstrate how some simple a11y.in tools can be used to provide alternative narratives to available content on the Web.
After that, we will have a hands-on work out for 30 minutes where the participants will blog alternative narratives to a couple of popular Web-pages on physics education.
The participants can then experience how much of the content on the Web can be re-narrated to suit the needs of students. They will also understand how this technique will effectively enable a Web-page to be narrated as a video on a mobile by demoing it using an Android app.
