Hugh,

I was struck by your email story about trying to teach ESOL to a blind
person. The Perkins School for the Blind is located in Watertown, MA. I do
not know if they have ever taught ESOL, but if they haven't maybe they
should. Good Luck.

Hi Linda:

I am working at a Charter School for Adults to teach English as a Second
Language to the immigrant population of the District of Columbia. We have a
72 year old blind student who is trying to learn English. We made several
attempts to find computer assistive technology for the blind and non English
speaking student.

We bought JAWS but the student has not found it very helpful because her
lack of English. We have contacted PREMIER ASSISTAIVE TECHNOLOGY, Tel (815)
722-5961 and they have donated a group of programs contained in a single CD.
The programs provide assistive technology to persons with disabilities.

Check with them and tell them that I referred you.

Good luck
