The professor can make the course more accessible to the student who has difficulty reading print documents due to a visual impairment by adding voice recordings or ‘audio notes’ to any Microsoft document (word, PowerPoint, excel, etc.). The student could also use a document reader that will read the words printed on the screen to them at any speed they wish. If possible the professor could also use the ‘Accessible Documents’ through C.A.F.E and follow the steps in the documents to make Microsoft a more accessible tool.
The professor can make the course more accessible to the student who has difficulty comprehending complex concepts by using graphic organizers and advanced organizers to help the student understand the concepts of the lesson. The professor could also post outlines before each class so that the student can have more processing time.
