A few tea leaves, only:

Google for "audio mathematics raman"

Check out MathTalk (dot com).

You will find more relevant educators on the EASI list than here, I expect.
[Google for 'EASI'.]

See what leads Susan Osterhaus can give you on who to talk to.
[Google for "Susan blind mathematics".]

Google also for "MAVIS blind mathematics".

Good luck.
