MyAccessible+ Math: Shining Light on Math Concepts for Visually Impaired Students

Authors:

Keywords: Vision-impaired students; Accessibility; Speech recognition

Abstract:
For some of us, a full understanding of complex mathematical concepts is only achieved through a lifetime of practice. For students with a visual impairment, this process is hindered by the inability to process complex mathematical formulas. While computer technologies have successfully transformed and enhanced the learning process, the potential promised by these technologies has not become the reality for visually impaired students. For years, the most effective way to communicate ideas to a blind person has been through either audible conversation or braille writing, both methods having their shortcomings for more complex mathematical analysis. This is the purpose of the MyAccessible+ Math Project; bridging the gap between math professors and students who simply need instruction from a different perspective. The motivation of this study is to introduce a prototype of our web application that will help visually impaired high school students to evaluate their mathematical skills. It is our hope that the use and further development of our prototype shall open doors to these students in areas of academia and beyond that have until now seemed eternally sealed.
