Lisa,

 I looked at your link, but does this work with JAWS?

Hi all,

It recently came to my attention that my friend's vision teacher discouraged
algebra 2 honors based on its pace and visual emphasis; more graphs are
involved. She told me she  took algebra 1 honors and did fine and felt the
next part would be okay but wasn't sure how to do the graphing part other
than by hand. She said there is no accessible graphing calculator. I only
know of the computer audible graphing calculator for blind students which
obviously displays the graph in an audible sound.

I did not have to use these fancy graphing calculators in algebra 2 much but
apparently the curriculum changed to involve more graphic equations since I
took it in this same county. When I needed to use it, I had a reader who was
my vision teacher type in the info in the calculator and then draw the graph
once it came up. I have some vision so could see  it on large graphing paper
with a bold pen.
Most equations I just solved algebraically, as opposed to graphing them.


So, what have you done? What do you do when other students use scientific
graphing calculators? How do you access the same info? What options are out
there for scientific talking calculators? This student has no vision. I
thought she could just use a reader and they could show her the graph but
they do not think it's a good idea. Also, she was told she could not use a
reader on the state standardized test. I was shocked as this seems like a
reasonable accomodation, if she cannot operate the calculator herself.
She is in public school as well, and its sad that the teacher of the vision
impaired isn't coming up with a solution.

So curious to know how you handle it. One idea I had was to use the computer
such as excel to draw some of the graphs, but this couldn't be used on state
tests, as its my understanding no technology can be used there.

Thanks.
Ashley
