E-learning is a common tool to support the education in variety of scenarios. As the education contents can be prepared by the group of specialists, but the skilled teachers are limited in remote area. Also, the contents in most curriculum are planned to distribute to limited skilled people. The gap of education can be full-filled with E-learning system. However, the conventional E-learning is high-cost system and not appropriated for rural area. Also, open-source system is complicated to implement and configure in dedicated curriculum. This paper is proposed the customized design of E-learning system for supporting visual impaired student with dynamic design during Covid-19 pandemic. This paper shows the development that is based on the open-source system that is customized for the visual impaired student. The system is to support restricted budget study group in broad area where it can be customized to the study student group. The limitation has challenged the research to share and test among the stakeholders. The system is designed and implemented from actual requirements from teachers and students in university level. The evaluation is based on comparison between conventional study method and proposed e-learning system in same semester. The developed system built on text-to-speech, simple design and customized UX/UI. As a result, the result show student involvement and deliver more contents and knowledge to the visual impaired students. The feedback from actual usage also is evaluated.
