Hi all,

I have a student with Usher's Syndrome here at the University of
Arizona.... She is deaf and is losing her vision. Right now she is
depending on a CCTV to read her course materials but is finding that
to be very exhausting / strenuous. She is blind in one eye and has
20/70 vision in the other....

I suggested that she learn braille and learn how to use a computer
with a screen reader / refreshable Braille display..... Any other
suggestions for this student?

Thanks much!
