Hi Robert,
I have come across this issue several times and did find a google group for Pro Tools Accessibility: http://groups.google.com/group/ptaccess
This is a great place for your student to ask questions and get some answers.
Best regards,

Subject: [Athen] MAC accessibility for music

Hi all,

I have a visually impaired student going into audio engineering. He has some limited perifial vision and can do okay with enlarged graphics. He doesn't know print well enough to read it effectively.

Our biggest concern is the Mac computers he will need to use for the audio recording software. We will be meeting with one of the instructors from the program tomorrow to see how well the built-in magnifier works for him. We'll also try Voice Over to see if it will read enough of the text to be effective.

Do any of you have any other ideas that we could try to make the Macs and the audio software accessible? I'm all ears!
