[Athen] Accessible alternative to PopG genetics tool

Hello all,

PopG<https://evolution.gs.washington.edu/popgen/popg.html> is a small Java program which runs simple genetic evolution simulations with a few parameters. One of our biology instructors uses it, but it is almost entirely inaccessible to screen readers. The source is available, but I don't know enough Java to fix the issue.

PopG link: https://evolution.gs.washington.edu/popgen/popg.html

Does anyone know of a roughly equivalent tool that is accessible to a screen reader? A pre-made Jupyter notebook might be simple enough, but ideally it would be just as point-and-click as PopG.

Thank you for your help,
