Search Engine for Visually Impaired

Did you know Google has a special search engine for the visually impaired? This was news to me. Anyway, the benefit it that it attempts to find websites that work the best with screen readers. Here is the link
This has potential to be a nice resource for the visually impaired, as well as auditory learners.

Now once you get to the pages, clean up the pages but reducing visual distractions such as advertising and images. Paul Hami's blog suggests trying TidyRead or Readability. I have tried both of these and they both work differently on different sites. You will have to play around to see what one works best for the student or for you.
