This will make doing work in a group very difficult.  People always think voice is the future for blind people till they sit down and try to use it.  Just think of how fun it is to fight with the best voice activated devices, Alexa, Siri, and Google.  Now add the problem of math.  I say good luck but I wouldn't do it. At least not with the current power of voice activation.

Subject: [BlindMath] Voice activated screen reader graphic calculators?

Hi all! 
 Today, at the end of math class, my math teacher came up with a good idea. He recamended that I should hunt for a nice graphic calculator that can be activated by voice commands, much like SIRI is opperated. He suggested that I get my hands on one called I think it’s called Pentel or something like it. I have not used this calculator for an iphone. I don’t know if it’s screen reader accessible. Does anyone know of a graphic calculator that can be opperated by voice, that’s software on a computer or smart phone and is screen reader accessible? I think that it might help me out in addition to the TI84 graphic calculator. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this E Mail! 
Blessed be!!!
