American Printing House for the Blind, Inc.
Works with your Apple® iPad® or iPad mini® running iOS 7® or later!
While there are hundreds of math drill and practice apps on the App Store℠, most of them are not accessible to students who are blind. APH's Math Robot™ was designed for students who are blind and visually impaired, as well as sighted students, making it ideal for use by an entire class.
A flashcard format and a smart "know-it-all" math robot character provide fun drills and practices for simple math problems. The app is both self-voicing and accessible with Apple's VoiceOver.
Math Robot automatically announces the problem, or if VoiceOver is running, it uses the screen reader to announce and control the app functions. For sighted students, Math Robot intelligently enunciates and repeats the problem.
When using a refreshable braille display, like APH's Refreshabraille 18™ Bluetooth device, the built-in VoiceOver screen reader shows the problem in braille and allows the user to enter his or her answers using the display's braille keyboard. Set VoiceOver to display the problems in literary U.S. English Braille, Unified English Braille, or Nemeth Braille.
In order to input your answers in Nemeth braille, your braille input should be set for eight-dot uncontracted braille. You are then be able to input Nemeth characters one at a time and without the number sign.
Teachers and parents can: set the range of numbers to use for drills; select the operations to use; set the number of tries, and set a time limit allowed to answer each problem. A low vision mode adds extra contrast.
Recommended ages: 6 years and up.
