I agree with Tim. Here in the US we do produce exams in a format the student is most comfortable with. We are a transcribing agency and do many different exams for numerous states - both at the k-12 and university level.

Question for you.  Who publishes your math/physics textbooks?  This might be important to making a case.  Maybe your teacher needs some support as well.  Does anyone know a vendor that would take care of reproducing an exam in the Braille format or software that would pump it out in some way?
 I'm also curious about this on a personal basis.
