Hi Kay,

Absolutely. I'm copying Jen O'Callaghan, who works with our Operation Partners in Texas, so she can spread the word that it shall simply be "understood" that these kids need to and are allowed to program under this exception to our Allowable Software rule.

Have an awesome day,

Scott

Subject: Blind students and FLL

Scott,
I am a rookie FLL coach and a teacher at Texas School for the Blind where we are starting a team for the 2012 season.

Danny Diaz suggested that you might be able to help with a problem we have with my blind and visually impaired students accessing the mandated software. The Mindstorms software is not accessible by screenreader or braille display. We would like to get approval for using a (different) accessible software for those students who are not able to see well enough to use the visual Mindstorms programming tool. This would enable all of my students to experience programming the robot for themselves.

Thanks,
Kay
