For the 200th anniversary of Austen's novel, NPR Books
presented a condensed adaptation by cartoonist Jen Sorensen
in a mobile-friendly format. Using "responsive" design, Sorensen's cartoon
was as easily viewed and read on a phone-size screen as it was on a larger tablet or "web classic" monitor (laptop, desktop). The phone version scrolled vertically. The larger format was more horizontal.
Does presenting a cartoon in a form that morphs based on a reader's screen configuration fundamentally alter the storytelling or meaning?
I'm saving the thread here because I suspect those of us in the digital storytelling business will be having more conversations like this as we try to figure out how best to make our work accessible on whatever gizmo our viewers, readers and listeners happen to be be using when they find it.
