Computation programs (e.g., MatLab, Mathematica, Maple, etc.) are widely used in university scientific courses. The major access barriers for blind and partially sighted users concern speech and tactile interaction with the front end.

This presentation at first introduces some of the most effective techniques which can be employed by a blind or partially sighted user to access some widely used computation programs. Moreover, a prototype accessible front-end for Mathematica software is presented.
