Independence Science Receives Award From National Federation of the Blind for Making Science More Accessible

“Blind students remotely control the Sci-Voice TLQ2 device that is connected to the teacher’s host computer. They can start and stop data collection, graph data and explore data tables,” Hingson said. “By sharing audio in the virtual meeting platform, the JAWS audio feed – made possible by our partner VISPERO – comes through the blind student’s speaker on their home computer. It is this interface that made scientific data collection possible during a global pandemic.”
