Graphs for blind students

| tags: blind, ideas, enabling technology

The most frequent request I get from teachers of the visually impaired is help with graphs. Graphs are a part of the curriculum that blind kids don’t get. I contend that simply displaying the graph with touch or sound is not the answer. What is? Could we (semi)automatically extract key points from a graph and convey that information to a student?

MathTrax from Nasa is very relevant.
