The Bismarck Tribune of Bismarck, N.D., reports that legally blind student-teacher Alexis Read is able to pursue her chosen profession because of technology. Read, who suffered nerve damage that left her with 20/400 vision, is in the teacher certification program at Minot State University. She uses technology to do all of her work, including software that helps scan her students’ assignments and read them back to her so she can grade them.
