Cisco GUIs rely heavily on Java and somewhat inaccessible web interfaces. I learned to get around this by using the CLI (which is a better way to learn IMHO anyway), but the instructors should be aware that the student may need to use the CLI and learn the actual command line syntax for configuration.

Subject: [Athen] Suggestions for Student with Low Vision taking CISCO Networking classes

Apart from the expected barriers presented by print material, handwritten white board content, projected images and online instructional material, I'm trying to anticipate other challenges a student with low vision may encounter in a "hands-on" networking classroom.

If any have had experience accommodating students with low vision who need to perform tasks like working with internal server components, wiring, etc. I'd appreciate any and all suggestions you may have.

Thank you!
