Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

Institution: Bowling Green State University
Linguistic Field: Phonetics
Abstract: This paper discusses techniques, including the Braille IPA, which are useful for the full inclusion of blind and visually impaired students into the phonetics classroom. Topics include transcribing, reading transcription, access to textbooks and classroom management. Suggestions for making the classroom more accessible have the added advantage of creating better access to information for the sighted students as well. The material may also be useful to blind phonetics instructors who teach sighted students.
