Ti 84 Plus Graphing Calculator For Dummies Pdf Download

Over the past few years, the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have become hot topics among people with vision loss. Being visually impaired, I was delighted when I discovered that the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) and Orbit Research had formed a partnership to create an accessible version of the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator by Texas Instruments. This article gives the lowdown about this exciting, innovative product.

The Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator is almost an exact replica of the Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus graphing calculator used by sighted students, except the Orion has an additional "add-on" component consisting of11 additional keys located above the calculator's display screen. The keys on the Orion are fairly easy to distinguish by touch, with variation from convex to concave for quick recognition. For even more tactile discernment a nib could be added to the 5 key on the number pad. The background and text of the keys vary in color, including white, black, grey, blue, and green. Some of these background/text pairings result in a high contrast scheme, such as the black text used on the white keys of the number pad, but others (like the blue text used to designate the second functions of keys), are more difficult to see. The text size used for the keys ranges from 7- to 12- point.

Besides replication through audio, it is possible to produce print, tactile, or electronic representations of a graph, but you must first purchase the TI Connectivity Graph Link serial-to-USB cable in order to interface with a computer. Then, you have to download and install the free TI Connect software, which is accessible with screen reading or magnification. At that point, you can create and edit graphs on the calculator, connect to the computer, and open images of the graphs using Microsoft Paint or a similar program. Obviously, your embosser must be able to create tactile graphs and must be able to convert .BMP files.
