Criptörök is a small collection of fiction that looks to understand the essential role of access workers within the digital space.

Looking at the labour of transcribers, captioners, and on-demand workforces, like mechanical Turks, the work challenges the assumption that accessibility happens behind the scenes and delves into the histories and futures of access work to understand the potential harms and injuries.

These fictions are based on interview extracts with a number of access workers, undertaken by Louise Hickman.
