You people are the best! Thanks so much. I will pass this information on to my student and try to assist him in his progress.
P.S. I am top-posting to emphasize my appreciation.

Subject: Assistance for Visually Impaired Student
I teach a course in Digital Integrated Circuits at the local University. One of my students is visually impaired-not totally blind but he requires a powerful reader for documents and the equilivant of a telescope to see the overhead projection of my course slides. He has expressed interest in Linux but, quite understandably, would require some software assistance to view documents and circuit schematics, potentially enlarging them at specific areas. I run Debian Lenny on my home system and Dual Boot with Ubuntu on my University laptop. Can anyone point to some specific software that I might have him try. TIA
