Yeah, I was hoping to just have an HTML page or something that could be put on Github or just sent in an email attachment, where checking checkboxes would update the fraction cookie.

Was your initial thought that if you could export the mechanisms in your assignment to interactive HTML (of whatever form) then you could let the browsers and their various accessibility APIs (of which I should confess right now I have almost no knowledge) to present that interactive content in whatever way the consumer of said content has requested?

And while I'm especially bad at this part, a long time ago I had limited success wrapping some transformations in lisp within Org-mode and I've seen others perform similar trickery with greater success.

> Well, some teachers are blind, which means Emacspeak, and Spacemax does have visual stuff, so Emacspeak may not work well with that. I’ll have to try Doom Emacs though, maybe that’ll work better. The bigger problem though, is that Emacspeak relies on speech servers, and the one for Windows hasn’t been updated in… quite a while. I just want not only myself and technically inclined sighted teachers to be able to access this, plus its good to have accessible teaching tools no matter what, because you never know when another blind person may want to use it later on.

Especially not sure how much sugar it offers as far as sharing a particular experience with new users, but at the very least you should be able to include basic usage instructions within the Org file?
