There are some websites that do that. One of the best is wolfram alpha. I
don't know if it works with voiceover but you can try it for free

I find it very interesting they want the students to use a ti 89. I am a
computer science student and have taken calculus 1,2 and 3. I am currently
in applied linear slfebra. We were specifically told no ti 89 because they
do derivatives snd integrals and we needed to be able to do them ourselves
since that was the pirpose of the class.

You can google for websites that solve integrals and derivatives that is
ehat i did to verify homework. Then you could try them out to check
accessabilty with voiceover.
