What Accessibility features does Desmos offer?

Accessibility

Our mission at Desmos is to help every student learn math and love learning math. Not some students. Every student. With that in mind, we design our math tools to ensure students who are blind or visually impaired have the same opportunities as their peers to discover the joy of learning math.

All of our math tools include Enlarge Display, which makes text and graphed curves larger and bolder. Access Enlarge Display by clicking on the wrench icon found in each tool.

Reverse Contrast. Screenshot.

All four Desmos calculators also include a Reverse Contrast mode, also accessible via the wrench icon.

The wrench icon also accesses our Braille options in certain tools. We support Nemeth and UEB in our Graphing, Four Function and Scientific Calculators, as well as in our Classroom Activities!
