Title: Making analytical chemistry accessible to blind and vision impaired students

Analytical chemistry is an upper level course for undergraduate students that is challenging for many, both in terms of content in the lecture as well as learning new techniques in lab. If course materials are not carefully designed, this content can be impossible to access for students with vision impairment (VI). In this talk we share our experience of making analytical chemistry lecture and laboratory content accessible to students with VI. We also share the difficulties faced by a student with VI that helped to shape how we create materials, approach lab safety, and adapt experiments to be done as independently as possible.
