[nabs-l] Getting Feedback on Graded Work

Is Microsoft Word's comments feature only accessible on a 
computer? I once received a paper back where I couldn't read it 
on the Braille note or Iphone, only the computer.
Cricket, I like your email idea.  And I agree, I had an aide in 
high school but when I start college this year I am happy to be 
without one.

Comments sometimes don't read with certain screenreaders, so 
normally
I ask them to send comments back to me on an email.  Since I 
write my
papers, I know what the comments refer to.  I don't have an aide
because I don't need (or really want) one, and that allows me to 
make
friends and interact with my peers.  Most students are less 
likely to
talk to someone when there's always an adult hovering nearby.  
I've
always been a public mainstream student anyway though, so I've 
kind of
had to tough it out when I didn't have all of my materials and 
stuff
on time.  But for comments, they can just write it in email if 
that
works for you.  That way, you won't have to have someone read 
stuff to
you.  Sometimes if I really need clarification on something, I 
will
arrange to talk to the teacher at lunch or when the rest of the 
class
is being particularly talkative.  I find that these options 
afford me
some privacy.  Hope this helps!

 Hi All,
 I was wondering what you students do when you receive graded 
work back
 with comments.  The sighted students obviously have immediate 
access to the
 printed comments, but we don't.
 Do you ask the teacher to read them quietly, ask an aide? Any 
other
 strategies?
 Thanks,
 Vejas
