I am a Phd student and I am teaching Music Technology in Bangor Wales.
This year we have a student, who is blind, and interested in learning Max-MSP.
I was wondering if there is any way of doing that. Any ideas are welcome.
I am trying to help this student but since I am not a programmer (working only Max a couple of years now), I guess there are people out there who know more or maybe somebody has already created a patch he want's to share.
It is a very interesting topic for cycling74 as well. One can argue that all the music software are accessible to a certain group of people. Maybe we could make programmes that are more fluid-accessible.
It is oxymoron that a student with such a great hearing abilities not being able to express him self musically with such a powerful "instrument" such as Max-MSP.
PS: if anyone is interested about the student's ideas of how music software could become accessible to blind people, I can post his email after I receive it.
Thank you very much,
