One of my students is visually impaired, and has a hard time following the things I do in class. The class scenario is something like this: I do some stuff which is displayed on the projector and the students do the same on their computers.
Google on "Section 508" - that's the US Federal Requirements for enabling software for people with disabilities. Something regarding a "how to" or "tips" should surface.
Could she see an animated cursor, or possibly a laser pointer?
Philo - thanks. Will google it.
On Win2K for example, "Control Panel/Mouse/Pointers" and set Scheme to "Magnified (system scheme)", or to one of various other enlarged schemes.
Could you hook up a second monitor just for her? Something she could sit right in front off?
I was going to suggest the 2nd monitor/laptop.
Thanks Robert - I will have to ask the university computing folks about that.
