Hello,
This is my first time to post to this list-serv as I only recently knew it 
existed.  I am new to the field of disabilities having been in this position a 
little over a year.  Here is my problem:

I have a blind student taking Math 099.  He comes to my office and I read the 
test to him.  Today the instructor brought me a test and it's on graphs, and 
axes, and slopes of lines, x & y intercepts, etc...  I have no idea how to read 
this test to this student!!   Is this even a reasonable test for this student?  
Any ideas on how I can help him?

I announced in class for a student worker to help him but nobody volunteered.

We have in our library tutors who help him with assignments but they don't have 
the time to read a test to him as they are helping other students.

We have JAWS, Openbooks, and a Pearl reading solution on a computer in our 
library.  I was wondering if this is capable of reading tests to him?

Thanks for any assistance.

Sandy
