Title/Affiliation: Independence Science.
In 2012 Independence Science released the Talking LabQuest, which incorporated text-to-speech with the Vernier LabQuest making it the first accessible commercially available data-collection device for STEM.
In combination with the large number of Vernier sensors, the Talking LabQuest has enabled students who are blind or visually impaired to be more independent in lab courses. Since then Vernier has introduced the LabQuest 2 with improved hardware and software capabilities and additional sensors, and Independence Science has just released the Talking LabQuest 2 giving BVI students access to these improvements.
This talk will demonstrate the accessibility features of the Talking LabQuest 2 as well as some of its new capabilities.
