started a new project that may be of interest to some of you. Starting
tonight, I'll be adding one transcript a day to West of Bathurst.
I should have written transcripts while I was putting out the comic,
but I didn't, and I haven't fixed that because it's such a huge job.
However, I can handle one transcript a day, and I'll turn it into a bit
of a revisit of the comic. I'll post on Facebook (on the West of Bathurst page)
whenever I put up a new transcript, and I'll add my usual brief, snarky
comment, plus possibly a longer comment if I feel like it. The whole
thing will take a few years to get through, but that's okay. (I likely won't tweet every day about it, as I already devote rather too many tweets to It Never Rains, but if people think I should, maybe I'll reconsider. Perhaps I'll just do one tweet a week.)|
There will actually be two new WoB transcripts tonight, simply because I want to do a "Last" link on each transcript, and I can't if there's no final transcript. I've thus written transcripts for both the very first WoB comic and the very last WoB comic. I'm also going to be replacing the old links with the kinds of buttons I use on It Never Rains.
In addition, I'm going to be shoring up It Never Rains' accessibility. Each page is supposed to have an (invisible) button that allows people using screen readers to skip straight to the transcript, but I accidentally erased it at some point. I'm not sure when. I've added it back to the most recent pages. I'm going to go back to adding the alt-texts to the early transcripts, and while I'm doing that, I'll look for pages with missing buttons. The problem won't be fixed immediately, but eventually, it will. I'll also add descriptions of the special banner headers when I run across them. I've already posted a description of the regular INR banner on the first INR page.

|Panel 1: Rose
is sitting on her living-room couch, her knees tucked up under her
chin, as she writes in a notebook. Her phone and a book are sitting
next to her. Radha approaches.
Radha: Does Denise have some kind of rodent in her room?
Rose: Oh...you noticed that?
Panel 2: Radha sits down beside Rose.
Radha: She won't let me in, but I've heard the wheel squeaking.
Rose: It's a very active mouse.
Radha: Why is it there at all? When did we agree to let Denise have a pet?
Panel 4: Rose puts down the notebook, lowers her feet to the floor, presses one hand to her heart, and raises an index finger.
Rose: Berlin. 1925. You were a Russian sailor, she a poor milkmaid. It was mouse at first sight.
Alt-Text: "And then, one day, the cybertronic pirate arrived."
