Though I don't know much about the format, Clendinning & Marvin, 2nd ed. (W.W. Norton), is available as an ebook. That or another text in electronic version, combined with the text-to-speech and other accessibility features of a computer/e-reader, may work, if no true audio or braille text is available.

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.
