Access Science for ALL

Chemist Dr Cary Supalo, who is himself blind, has a web-based site called Independence Science which is dedicated to making Science, and specifically Chemistry, accessible to students who are blind or visually impaired.

The Talking LabQuest (TLQ) is the latest in scientific access technology for the blind and the only device developed to improve hands-on experiments in the laboratory. This hand-held, portable computer allows a student to collect and analyze data independently or within a lab group of their sighted peers. Open a world of opportunity for a student who is blind or low vision in STEM fields of study with the ISci Lab Solution. Hear or view this video below for an overview of how the TLQ feels, operates, and completes an experiment.
