Google Docs has given OCR a front and center WOW. Take an image document, save to drive, hit your applications key (that key that is between your start menu and ctrl on a desktop) and open with google docs. Wait for Google to take it through the OCR process, do a ctrl a to select all, copy with ctrl c and paste with ctrl v into word. Hit the ctrl key, which takes you into paste options and hit t for keep text only. That is it–that easy. If you can get the document electronically, you can send it through to drive and OCR that image into text.

Graphing Scientific Calculator link:

If you are looking for a standalone calculator,  Sight Enhancement Systems, develops scientific calculators that are designed for the visually impaired.  They call it the “SciPlus”.

The main differences compared to the tablet Apps are:
– speech output in various languages
– large, tactile buttons (a major advantage over touch screen apps, which also makes our calculators desirable for people with various fine motor challenges)
– adjustable contrast, invertible, backlit display

…and yes, they do have a graphing version.

In addition to the above features, another reason people purchase them is because of the requirement that various districts have prohibiting computers or web-connected devices (which is what smart phones and tablets are) into exams.  We’re very proud of our calculators, but in the end that’s all they are — calculators, and that’s actually what many people like about them.
