Dragon is pretty quick to learn and you can still use keystrokes if you
don't remember all the commands. Is he open to learning? You might
encourage "buy in" by educating that this could be an accommodation he
could also use in the workplace to give him that competitive edge....

Subject: 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
