Hello Julie, I sent an email to Texas Instruments asking for ideas of what could be done to help your student and received the following reply: Jeanne, Thank you for contacting Texas Instruments, an educational technology company. The only emulator produced by Texas Instruments was for the TI-81. We do not have any other emulator software for other graphing handhelds. The TI-81 emulator can be found at the following web address: http://education.ti.com/us/product/tech/81/down/emu.html I suggest that you contact the Center for Rehab Technology. This Atlanta-based company searches for products for the visually and hearing impaired. They provide the service at no cost to the consumer. Center for Rehab Technology Georgia Institute of Technology 1-800-726-9119 1-404-894-4960 Please note that they are a referral service, and do not actually manufacture calculators. I can also provide you with the name and address of a company that has an impressive range of products aiding the visually impaired from large print to Braille and "talking" items. We suggest you contact the Lighthouse at the following address: The Lighthouse 36-01 Northern Boulevard Long Island City, NY 11101-1614 (800) 829-0500 There are also other numerous web sites that offer various sources of information for the disabled. Some of these web sites are listed below. http://www.beyondsight.com/ http://www.tsbvi.edu/math/vendors.htm http://www.tsbvi.edu/math/tools-lv.001 http://viewplustech.com/ http://www.goldedtech.com/index.htm I hope you find this information helpful.
