A new challenge

Every so often my academic life gets a little challenging. I’m not talking about taking on too much because I am unable to say no because trust me, I know how to say no. I’m not talking about the social aspect (What are parties) lol. I’m not even talking about having a new roommate though I hear that can certainly be challenging.

I’m talking about being given an assignment that you’ve never heard of and not knowing how you’re going to complete it. For me such an assignment came this semester. I have to complete something called a reading inventory. Apparently it’s a book of tests that you have to give to a student that you pull out of class. The problem isn’t that I don’t understand how to give it. The problem is that I’m not sure how I’m going to give it.

Let me explain. In order to give this reading test to the student one has to be able to read along while observing how they read (mistakes, skip over words, put in new words, look at you for help etc). The problem is that I can’t read it (I have a screen reader). The problem is that I can’t read with a screen reader and listen to someone talk/read at the same time. This is definitely where a braille display (that I don’t have) could come in handy.

my question

Have you done anything like this before without a braille display? How? Do you have any suggestions I can use for this and any future assignments? if so, they’d be greately appreciated.

Thanks for reading!
