Use Audio to Understand the Meaning of Flattening the Curve, Thanks to Desmos

You may have recently heard the phrase "Flattening the Curve" but the visual reference to controlling the spread of COVID-19 may make more sense when presented in audio form. Thanks to the Desmos Graphing Calculator, this is now possible.

The graph, based on a graphic published by the Centers for Disease Controland Prevention, has been converted to audio using the Desmos online interface.

From the page:

Flattening the curve refers to a public health strategy to keep the number of cases of infection within the limits of the healthcare system to care for people who are sick. This graph is based on a graphic published by the CDC. It shows the number of cases of a disease as time progresses since the first case occurred.

Instructions are given for screen reader users on how to navigate the graph. You can either explore each point individually or listen to the entire graph at once. Use stereo headphones for best results.

You can listen to Blind Bargains Qast 140 which features an extended segment on the Desmos Graphing Calculator.
