We have had at least 4 students use it and they all loved it. Yes, there are some frustrations while trying to learn it, but the sighted students face the same thing.

Subject: [Athen] Accommodations for students with visual impairments

Hello all!

I have a student who is blind and is required to take a statistics course. I was doing some research and found a talking graphing calculator that is supposed to be accessible for students with visual impairments. It is the Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator. I wanted to reach out and ask if anyone else has either had students who have used this calculator before and receive feedback, or hear anyone else's suggestions for this situation.

Thank you so much!
