Does anyone have any experience working with a blind student using AutoCad? I am working with a blind student who is taking an Intro to Engineering class and having a lot of trouble with AutoCad accessibility. On AutoCad's VPAT it states that the software provides information to the user via the Microsoft Active Accessibility application. The best information that I could find was that the Microsoft Active Accessibility is now the built in Ease of Access Center. AutoCad doesn't work with JAWS and the narrator in the Ease of Access Center doesn't make it very accessible either. Anyone have any experience working with a blind or visually impaired student using AutoCad?
