Math Robot™

Category: 

Description of App: 

From the App Store:

While there are many arithmetic apps, most are not accessible to students who are blind or visually impaired. Math Robot was designed for use by blind, visually impaired, and sighted students alike, making it ideal for use by an entire class.

Math Robot provides fun drills and practices for simple math problems. The app is both self-voicing and accessible with VoiceOver. Math Robot announces each problem as it comes up.

Teachers, parents, and students can set the range of numbers, the mathematical operations, the number of tries, and more.

A low vision mode adds extra contrast.

When using a refreshable braille display, like APH’s Refreshabraille 18™ Bluetooth device, VoiceOver shows the problem in braille and allows the user to enter their answers using the display’s braille keyboard.
