During an Interview with the Dailymail, she said she was able to complete her course using Brallieview as her friends and Tutors helped her to fill in the gaps throughout her study in the University of Law.
 
In her words;

I was spending more time preparing my own learning materials than I was studying. I was hospitalized because I kept fainting in October 2019 because I’d been functioning on about three hours sleep a night for two years. 

 
I would sometimes get 45 minutes a day to eat, but often I ate while at my computer. The university had other visually impaired people who used text to speech, but I just can’t work like that. 
 
I need to read it physically for myself or I can’t remember it. Everyone is different and has a different work around for various situations. 
 
A lot of people registered blind have some vision, so they can sometimes use large print, or some blind people manage well just by listening to text. “Braille is expensive to produce because you need a lot of special software and equipment.
