Query:   Hi

Need some help. We have a blind student who is studying linguistics
(introductory course). We have arranged for a senior staff member to take
the student under her wing. We would really appreciate any assistance that
any one with experience in teaching blind students could provide us to
assist this student in an informed way.

As a historically disadvantaged university in South Africa (originally
intended for one particular not white population group) an additional
problem is a lack of funding - so our solutions have to be 'cost effective'!
