Which edition? The 7th is available from RFB&D <http://www.rfbd.org> -
they do a great job of audio description on all of the graphics. That
would be the way I'd go!

A student who is blind is planning on taking an Astronomy introductory
course at our University. The material is very visual. Has anyone had
any experience with this type of coursework? The primary textbook,
Universe by Freedman and Kaufmann, consists of numerous graphic
representations, photographs of stars and galaxies, etc. I would very
much appreciate any suggestions of how to depict this type of
information for this student.

We are also looking for a Braille version of this text book.

Thank you for any suggestions.
