I have approached this in a couple of different ways, by attaching a FlexCam
to the Ocular of the microscope

Then we purchased a Digital Microscope which allowed the student to do the
manipulations with a computer interface.

Has anyone ever used a dual-headed microscope with projection onto a
monitor (or similar set-up) for students who have difficulty accessing or
manipulating the microscope? We are looking to purchase equipment that
will make accessibility to our microscopes easier in our science labs. We
made some temporary modifications last semester, but are looking to make it
more permanent and universally accessible. Any information or experiences
would be helpful. Thank you.
