teaching acoustics to a student with low vision

Hello all - I have a student in my Physics of Speech class this semester
who has a visual impairment. We've worked out a number of ways to help
her access the material, such as enlarging text and having a note-taker
in class to get all of the board work, but are stuck on the lab portion
of the course. Most of lab activities use Multispeech and involve having
students reading waveforms, spectra, and spectrograms. Does anyone have
any experience with/ suggestions for ways we can help this student be
able to reap the benefits of this hands-on portion of the course?
