We're working with a biochemistry student with a visual impairment who is having difficulty seeing content written on a smart board or white board at the front of the classroom.

I'm familiar with several options like a monocular, secondary external display to "mirror" content, portable CCTV connected to student's laptop, etc etc. This student will be moving between several classrooms and will likely need a solution that works across a variety of locations / settings.

I'm curious if anyone else has solved a similar problem - and what solutions you've found helpful. This student mentions portability as a concern and also seems hesitant to use anything that draws attention to their visual impairment (which is an entirely different conversation.)

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer!
