With this in view, it may be in your friend’s best interest to hire a reader familiar with the content at hand and to utilize tactile graph paper (available through the American Printing House for the Blind), Wikki Stix, puff paint, push pins, string, etc. to construct requisite graphs. As big of a proponent as I am of the truly fantastic technological advances we have witnessed over the past decade, the low-tech approach is sometimes the best approach. This may be a case in which that holds true.
