A university in Holland is looking for a solution for a blind student who has to take a bachelor/premaster course in statistics. The faculty in question uses SPSS.
Please share experiences and tips:
- is SPSS accessible?
- if not, would you recommend to use R?
- if we use R, does this require extra effort (and how much extra effort) from the side of the teachers, e.g. adapting course material/explanation?
Also please give us your opinion about the (im)possibility of creating a (EU?)statistics course for blind students (using R instead of SPSS) that will offer an equivalent exam allowing blind students to work independently with R during their masters phase and professional life. This would make it much simpler for individual universities/faculties to deal with this question and would at the same time help blind students.
