You might look at draw.io or diagrams.net. Draw is web based, Diagrams is desktop software, and draw works on Android and iOS if you go with a tablet like Dawn suggested. It looks like most of the functions have keyboard shortcuts. On Android when I turn on VoiceAccess all the options have number labels, so pairing it with Dragon might be an option, but not sure how well that would work.

Hi Robert,

We've had students who can't hold a pencil for math equations/exams use an iPad app and their finger for writing/drawing. Might that be an option?

Thank you,

Hello all,

Does anybody have a good recommendation for software that can be used to draw diagrams for an econ class? I have a student with physical issues that make drawing difficult to impossible. He can use a computer keyboard okay, but trying to draw is not an option.

Thanks for any ideas.
