Lorraine, ViewPlus is making major improvements to its audio-tactile
graphics technology. If you will send me a few samples of your diagrams,
we'ld be happy to send everything to your student to see if she can access
them. If she can't, then you've got a big job. But I'm betting she will be
very surprised how easy and accessible these diagrams can be with the new
Tiger Player and Tiger Digital Pen. Ask her if she'd be willing to try.
And have her contact me if she's unsure.

No charge.

Subject: [Athen] Biology Diagrams in distance education class


We have a blind student in a distance education program who has to take a
Biology class. The class is 7 weeks with a lot of diagrams embedded in the
distance education blackboard course. She does not have good tactile
ability and relies on information being verbally described.

Any ides, thoughts on how to make this work would be helpful
