[Smt-talk] Undergraduate Harmony curriculum for a blind student?

I know this has come up on the list before, but perhaps not exactly  
in this form.

Could anyone recommend or provide contact information for a harmony  
course (covering essentially the normal two-year undergraduate  
sequence) that would be accessible for a blind student?

We're not trying to integrate this student into classroom study; that  
seems like a feat beyond our abilities, even with the help that might  
be provided by disability services. Rather the student wants to study  
on her own for a year or more, in order to pass out of our  
undergraduate requirements in order to pursue graduate study.

I'm assuming there must be some kind of audio/Braille course out  
there somewhere that covers the basics of harmony and voice-leading.  
I hope my sanguinity isn't misleading me.

Please reply privately, unless you think the information will be of  
general interest.

Thanks all for your attention to this request,
