Okay, thanks. I believe this student is totally blind, so magnification wouldn’t work. However, since I’m not positive about this, I’ll include this thought when I send the info back to them.

Hi all,

Robert, we utilize aleks at UW-Milwaukee in some hybrid classes, and while creating something accessible for someone who has quite limited vision has been successful with the program, we have found it totally inaccessible for totally blind students who are trying to listen. I haven't had any of my Braille-using students try it with a refreshable Braille display because they have all completed their math requirements via in-class sections per their choice.
