I received this question from a friend and wonder if anyone has any suggestions? I have not had the pleasure of working with Matlab yet.. Thanks for any responses.

"I'm wondering if you know of any blind students using Matlab/Simulink? I have a blind engineer in my group whose job involves doing simulations to test Simulink models. I don't know if you are familiar with the tool, but Simulink is a graphical modeling tool (which is of course problematic for a blind person). He is able to use excel, Command line commands and scripts he has written to generate test vectors, run the simulation and analyze the results, but is completely unable to access any useful information from or manipulate the model itself. We have not been able to get much support/help from the Mathworks (maker of the tool), and he has not been very successful finding other users in any of his on-line forum contacts. Since this is a very popular tool at schools as well as in industry, just wondering if you may have any contacts that might be helpful."
