- Language instructors face various challenges in fulfilling their tasks. Addressing students’ special needs with different needs is one of the greatest challenges confronting them. Such a challenge could be even more daunting when there is little support provided by the institution for special needs students. This paper focuses on documenting how a visually impaired language learner uses available technology to assist him in attending a language course at the tertiary level. This paper highlights several advantages as well as disadvantages of an application called Audible from the perspective of a visually impaired language learner. Apart from that, the student’s hopes and expectations related to the application were also recorded. This documentation may help enlighten relevant parties, including language instructors, application designers, or even policymakers, on the challenges faced by visually impaired students in learning. This, in turn, will help the relevant parties to provide better assistance to the students.
