The design and development of a microprocessor-controlled mathematics trainer is described. The trainer is designed primarily for a blind student, and uses synthetic speech to verbally present mathematics problems in the form of incomplete mathematical sentences. The student responds via numeric keypad. Feedback is given to the student immediately after each problem and after each problem session. Several options give the teacher flexibility in pacing the student. In addition, the teacher can create individualized problem sets or choose from many predefined problem sets, arranged in order of difficulty.
