Wow! Maybe no one cares about this but me, but I can't help but wonder what my dad would think about something like that. He spent 44 years with Uncle Sam in electronics--communications equipment. I remember his purchasing an SR51A for a school in 1973--that was big-time stuff! I'm not surprised that TI is manufacturing a talking calculator, as they pioneered computer speech back in the early 1980's. Anybody remember those Telesensory units from 40 years ago?

The web site he was talking about is
and looks quite interesting.

Here are a few facts about the graphing calculator:
"Audio Graphing Calculator (AGC)
Get the Audio Graphing Calculator
The AGC provides the functionality of handheld scientific calculators commonly used in the classroom. Operating on a flexible Windows platform and augmented with audio and tactile feedback, the AGC provides an alternative for people who cannot effectively use a handheld calculator, or those seeking a more interactive interface.

The AGC is accessible to anyone who can use a computer, regardless of ability, allowing the user to concentrate on math, not on learning the tools to access it.

Universal- use features include:
•Describing of graph shape through audio tones and cues •Speaking menus •Scalable visual display •Keyboard navigation •Tactile output options

New Features for AGC include:
•Advanced matrix functions
•More powerful expression evaluator
•Ability to locate polar coordinates
•Display multiple graphs and find intersections •Faster computation time •More statistical functions"

Hope this helps.

Try the following web site. On the site there is a program called Audio Graphic Calculator (AGC). Also a demo of AGC.

If you are in need of a talking calculator the Orion TI 36 by Texas
Instruments would be the one to purchase. Or you can use the scientific
calculator on your computer.

Hope this is of help to you.
