I would suggest using a CCTV that has the computer interface that allows
a split screen and also a screen magnifier such as MaGic or Zoom Text.
Does the student explored the idea of using a screen reader?

Please can you give me some ideas on the following

Scanner for handwritten materials.

I am working with someone whose vision is getting progressively worse.
She has to look at a screen all day with a lot of different information.
If she increases the font it makes it much harder for her to navigate
around the page. Because of this I am going to suggest using two
different screens with the information. Some of the information is hand
written material and harder to see so she may do better with listening
and seeing the information concurrently.


What scanning program and reader would people recommend for difficult
hand written material

Online Classes

Someone who works as a Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, has asked
about learning about Assistive Technology to help with work. What
online courses can people recommend to get started.

Thanks for your help
