[Blindmath] Bringing notes to an exam

I worked with a statistics student who could also bring notes.  We did the
notes in scientific notebook.  Since it is one double sided page you could
use two pages of a word document and then you could bring it into scientific
notebook and Braille it.  Our student did not have a notetaker so she used
Braille.  We were then able to give both the word doc and the Braille to the
instructor with the completed exam.  Hope this helps

Hi everyone,
A student I work with is taking a Calculus exam where students are allowed
to bring in one double-sided page of notes. We're trying to figure out what
a comparable equivalent to that would be for this blind student. How many
extra pages should he be allowed since Braille tends to take up more space?
Should it be printed out Braille or could it be on his notetaking device?
Does anyone have any experience with providing a similar accommodation?

Thanks everyone!
