Hi Cyndi!

Dux is definitely the way to go! I second Teresa's comments. Also, you
might want to talk with the student to be sure that they want actual hard
copy. Most students these days re using a computer with refreshable braille
displays for the bulk of their books. About the only thing that we output
to hard copy these days is tactile graphics or reference materials that
they need at a moment's notice.

Hope all is well!
