Below is a list of keystrokes for the Talking Calculator.  I haven't checked all of the keystrokes to make sure they work, although the ones I did try are fine.

The list is quite long and your student may want to work with only some of the commands.  The program includes calculating in various bases and calculating with very large numbers (up to about 100,000 digits), also other items which may not be needed.  Playing the music of a graph can be fun, but again may not be of interest.

Generally: To type a new number in any textbox click the End button (button means key) to move the cursor to the end of the number that is there, then Backspace till you delete all the digits to the beginning of the number, then type the digits or characters for the new number, then click Enter for Done.

Generally:  In any textbox you can click the right mouse button to get a drop down menu that includes Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Select All.

Generally: Characters is a general term for all symbols, digits are single number characters, 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and in other bases may include A,B,C,D, etc.
