A few years back, we outfitted a grad student with a laptop and DNS and it truly saved the day. She used it for everything including field notes for practice teaching. I will say, that various factors contribute to the success or failure of such an implementation and in our case all the stars were properly aligned. It also helped that there was absolutely positively no other option. At least consider a laptop.

accommodations, as he is thinking about signing up for classes. His presenting
difficulties are with writing, and he had done his research, and asked about
DNS and Inspiration. Good on him. He asked if there was a portable version of
DNS, one that could be carried on a USB device that he could take to different
places he might need to be using a computer.

is really nothing out there. Has anyone heard of anything or have any amazing
ideas how we might be able to make something work for this guy?
