Hi Jason,
Good luck on your justification.
There are two advantages to the iPad I can pin-point right away:
First, do you have a Braille notetaker or display already? The iPad will allow you to hook up with your Braille display. This way, you would still be using Voice-Over, but rather than relying on its speech you'd be navigating with the Braille display. (If you already have an iPhone, the Braille display commands with an iPad are largely the same).
The other thing is portability. An iPad is fairly lightweight compared to many computers. An iPhone is even more portable, though the iPad probably has a bigger screen that might allow you to utilize any residual vision you might have, if that's what you want.
Hope this helps,

I have to write up a justification draft for my assistive technologist for why the iPad would be helpful for me. What I need from my fellow students, or from any TVI or anyone else who wants to have any input, is to list any ideas or suggestions to put down on how an iPad would be beneficial in a college setting for blind students. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
