Do any of you have ideas regarding ways to help this student?

Question for the group.
We have at least one student who is both deaf and blind.
Has anyone addressed this situation within the context of Blackboard?
For visually impaired we of course have screen readers. You can
close-caption videos as well.
I've seen braille screenreaders as well (

Anyone seen other ideas/methods/etc for this type of communication?
