Hi Jeff,

Just out of curiosity, what is it that you do not like about the Audio
Graphing Calculator and MathTrax?

> ViewPlus creates the Audio Graphing Calculator and there is another

company that creates one called the Accessible Graphing Calculator
that work with speech and auditory output for graphing. I really
don't like either of these products but if the student has no other
means of performing complex graphing functions it can make due. The
view plus product can also work with their braille embossers to create
embossed graphs. MathTrax is a free graphing calculator that performs
more basic functions that was made by NASA but it kind of sucks. You
need to evaluate each to make sure that it provides the functions that
your students need.
