Introduction

The Orion TI-30XS is based on the popular TI-30XS MultiView™ Scientific Calculator made by Texas Instruments Incorporated. It is specially modified for accessibility for users with visual impairment. The functionality and operation of the Orion TI-30XS are identical in all respects to the standard TI-30XS Calculator. The only differences are additional controls, jacks, speakers, and software for accessible feedback of the calculator's output and the user's input.

About This Guide

This guide is designed to instruct you in the use and care of the Orion TI-30XS. It is accurate and complete as of the date of its publication. For the latest version, see http://tech.aph.org/xs_info.htm

The Orion TI-30XS information page contains the Quick Start guide and information about updates.

In addition to the User's Guide, there is an e-mail list th at discusses the Orion TI-30XS. To subscribe, send an e-mail to xs-subscribe@tech.aph.org. APH customer support and developers and interested, knowledgeable users exchange information here. The e-mail list is a great place to get usage tips, ask questions, or make suggestions.

For the purposes of this guide, the standard TI-30XS MultiView™ Scientific Calculator from Texas Instruments Incorporated is referred to as the TI-30XS. The Orion TI-30XS MultiView™ Talking Scientific Calculator is referred to as the Orion TI-30XS.

In order to make this document accessible for all users, we indicate keys on the TI-30XS portion of the calculator with a bold font. For visual and audio clarification purposes, we also use brackets around the words or symbols for a particular keys, 2nd functions, or menu items when necessary. For example, the key marked "sto right arrow" (store) is designated as [sto right arrow] and the 2nd function marked "right arrow %" is designated as [right arrow %]. Everything within the brackets is one key press.

If using the NVDA screen reader, it is recommended that you change the default setting from "read some punctuation" to "read most punctuation" for the best listening comprehension of this guide.

Home Screen

On the Home screen, you can enter mathematical expressions and functions, along with other instructions. The answers are displayed on the Home screen. The TI-30XS screen can display a maximum of four lines with up to 16 characters per line. For entries and expressions of more than 16 characters, you can scroll left and right by pressing the right arrow or left arrow on the directional pad to view the entire entry or expression. Similarly, to view entries and expressions that are more than four lines, you can scroll up and down by pressing the up and down arrows on the directional pad.

The Orion TI-30XS has the ability to display math in both Classic and MathPrint™ mode. Classic mode displays input and output on a single line on screen and is fully accessible. Due to the difficulty in accessing information not on the screen, MathPrint mode is not accessible. When the Orion accessibility is muted, MathPrint mode still works and can be used by visual users of the calculator. If the MathPrint mode is active, a message is announced indicating that MathPrint is not supported and instruction is given to change to Classic mode. (See the Modes section to learn how to switch to Classic mode.)

It is not necessary to use MathPrint mode to use the full functionality of the TI-30XS. If you want to know more about MathPrint mode, see the TI-30XS Scientific Calculator documentation from Texas Instruments Incorporated.

When you calculate an entry on the Home screen, depending upon space, the answer is displayed either directly to the right of the entry or on the right side of the next line.

Special indicators may display on the screen to provide additional information concerning functions or results. These are spoken when needed.

NORM displays results with digits to the left and right of the decimal, as in 123456.78.

SCI expresses numbers with one digit to the left of the decimal and the appropriate power of 10, as in 1.2345678∗10⁵ (which is the same as 123456.78).

Note: In some restricted environments (for example function table, data editor, and the 2nd [recall] menu), the TI-30XS calculator may display E instead of ∗10ⁿ.

ENG displays results as a number from 1 to 999 times 10 to an integer power. The integer power is always a multiple of 3.

Note: ×10ⁿ is a shortcut key to enter a number in scientific notation format. The result displays in the numeric notation format set in mode.

FLOAT  0123456789 Sets the decimal notation mode.

FLOAT (floating decimal point) displays up to 10 digits, plus the sign and decimal.

0123456789 (fixed decimal point) specifies the number of digits (0 through 9) to display to the right of the decimal.

CLASSIC  MATHPRINT™

CLASSIC mode displays inputs and outputs in a single line.

MathPrint mode displays most inputs and outputs in textbook format.

Note: The Orion TI-30XS has the ability to display math in both Classic and MathPrint™ mode. Classic mode displays input and output on a single line on screen and is fully accessible. Due to the difficulty in accessing information not on the screen, MathPrint mode is not accessible. When the Orion accessibility is muted, MathPrint mode still works and can be used by visual users of the calculator. If the MathPrint mode is active, a message is announced indicating that MathPrint is not supported and instruction is given to change to Classic mode.

Probability

prb

This key displays two menus: PRB and RAND.

PRB contains the following options:

nPr   Calculates the number of possible permutations of n items taken r at a time, given n and r. The order of objects is important, as in a race.
nCr   Calculates the number of possible combinations of n items taken r at a time, given n and r. The order of objects is not important, as in a hand of cards.  
! A factorial is the product of the positive integers from 1 to n. n must be a positive whole number ≤ 69.

RAND contains the following options:

rand Generates a random real number between 0 and 1. To control a sequence of random numbers, store an integer (seed value) ≥ 0 to rand. The seed value changes randomly every time a random number is generated.  
randint(   Generates a random integer between 2 integers, A and B, where A ≤ randint ≤ B. Separate the 2 integers with a comma.
Examples
nPr 8 Result = 8
