My name is Tony Stockman, I am a blind lecturer in Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, UK. You may well know that Clickers is the name given to systems used to provide feedback to teachers on how their class is going. The teacher can ask students to vote on an issue, or simply indicate how well they are currently understanding the taught material. Some systems offer a wide choice of different types of feedback. The feedback from these systems is presented visually, often in the form of a graph. One of my final year undergraduate students is currently developing a version of a Clicker system for use by blind or partially sighted teachers. I would be delighted to hear from anyone on the list who may be interested in such a system, including potentially trialling it when it is developed. Assuming the development goes well, it will be made available for free at the end of the project. We would of course like to know if anyone is aware of any similarly accessible Clicker systems that have already been developed. I am attaching a brief article on Clicker systems for anyone who is new to them who would like to read more details.

Kind regards,
