Thought of the day

My job is in making math and science textbooks available to blind students, so basically they get the ever-so-great honor of learning from how I choose to interpret and present the material. Right now I’m working on an engineering mechanics dynamics book. It’s a lot of pre-calc and physics, but in a relatively difficult context; I certainly wouldn’t want to take a course on this stuff, even with my ability to see all the diagrams and examples, so I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to do this stuff while blind.

I know this isn’t interesting to anyone else, but I find it incredibly impressive that there are blind students who are able to master this stuff.
