Michele, Jonathan is a very nice guy and would be happy to answer questions for your student. If you have a ViewPlus Tiger embosser, the graphs output by R emboss perfectly, though the legends do not emboss as braille. Jonathan is trying to persuade the R people to permit fonts to be changed, in which case, one could change them and emboss that text as either computer braille or DotsPlus braille. Ditto for the spreadsheets.

Hello all,

Has anyone had any experience with The R Project for Statistical Computing? We have a blind student interested in using this software. The student is familiar with Jonathon Godrey's essay "Statistical Software from a Blind Person's Perspective," but the student is specifically wondering how to view R output, spreadsheets, and graphics most easily.

I am unfamiliar with statistics software, so I'm at a bit of a loss.

Thank you for any recommendations!
