Dear Inclusive Design Community,

Many folks on this list know about the PhET Interactive Simulations project and their research and development efforts to make interactive science and math simulations accessible. The IDRC has had a long collaboration in these efforts.

“Ohm’s Law”, a physics simulation, was published this week.

We are very proud to say that this version offers a range of accessibility features that include alternative input, screen reader support, sound, and in addition, this sim is the first simulation published to include support for iOS VoiceOver.

Ohm’s Law is now ready to explore in diverse ways:
