I know there are screen magnifiers available for students with limited
sight. Are there braile computer keyboards?

Subject: Re: Sight Impaired Students in College Tutoring Centers
Importance: High

hello,
I hope some of my colleagues have some suggestions for me. We want to
provide the best services possible for a sight impaired student at our
tutoring center. We are staffed by peer tutors. We have a sight impaired
student who requires help completing her assignments - like documenting
a psych paper w/APA documentation - English papers w/MLA documentation -
& completing assignments in mathematics and spanish classes. The tutors
seem to do okay reading the student her spanish homework - since no
tapes of the books are available - but they are having a hard time
helping her complete the other assignments. We could use some guidance?
Does anyone know of any website  for the sight impaired college
students. Thank you  again for any support you can offer.
