I work in the University with students in a situation of disability, specifically, teaching them math and related things. I have a few students that are very visually impaired; they work with JAWS or NVDA, usually.

When we are working in Calculus or some course which depends a bit in visual things to be understood, it goes slow.

I'd like that the dynamics of the teaching were more fluid. So, I'm searching for some way to teach Geogebra, so they can apply these things for their study. Sadly, I think that Geogebra isn't too accessible for the visually impaired

I wonder if anyone have some good ideas to do a good geometric work with some accessible software, or if you know somehow to work with Geogebra for this purpose.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English :)

  • $\begingroup$ Geogebra has a powerful command line that can (probably) do everything you could do using a mouse. What features of Geogebra are you looking for in particular? $\endgroup$ – Jasper Apr 8 at 19:24

Desmos Geometry is not as fully featured as GeoGebra. However, Desmos does have specific features for the visually impaired such a screen reader support, braille support, and audio trace. These features may not currently work for the www.desmos.com/geometry section, but perhaps the www.desmos.com/calculator fits some of your needs.

See more details and instructions here: https://www.desmos.com/accessibility
