Unless his speech is not clear, he sounds like a good candidate for
Dragon Naturally Speaking.

Subject: [Athen] question of accommodating student with RMI

Hello All:

Here's an interesting case that came up. A graduate student who recently
started in a Humanities program on campus states that he cannot use a
computer keyboard - though he can hand write. Even a short time a
computer keyboard will exacerbate his RMI (carpal tunnel syndrome). He
requested someone to type for him (he needs to answer e-mails as part of
his graduate program, for example) for a number of hours per week. We
did not provide this accommodation. Has anyone else had a similar
experience? Any opinions on whether this should be a legally required
