#CSUNATC17 Audio: Desmos Makes Calculated Accessibility Moves with their Free Math Tools


Desmos is a company that uses the slogan "Beautiful, free math" and thanks to recent efforts, beautiful also means accessible. Jason Merrill is the lead engineer for the Desmos Graphing Calculator, a free tool that students or anyone can use to perform simple or mor advanced calculations. J.J. joins Jason who provides an audio demo of the calculator and explains some of the ways his team has made a visual graphing calculator more auditory. By the way, former AI Squared employee Steven Clower is also involved in this project, though some canceled flights prevented him from making an appearance with us this week.

Blind Bargains audio coverage of CSUN 2017 is generously sponsored by the American Foundation for the Blind.
