[Athen] [EXT] AT for student with low vision

For magnifying at a distance, supervision plus works really well on mobile devices. I’ve had several students use it in the classroom for looking at things on the board. I’m not sure if it’s a complete enough solution for you, but it’s one to think about.

Hello ATHEN friends!

Could I get your recommendations and ideas on some AT to support a student with low vision? We are specifically looking for accessible graphing calculator options - either iOS apps, software (student has a Mac) or a physical calculator.

Also, do you have recommendations for AT that can be used in the classroom to magnify content on the board or front of the classroom? We have the Transformer but I am wondering about other options that have worked for your students.

Thanks for the help!
