This is a list of resources, not an advertisement, as I have no interest in any of these.
When I looked before, I didn’t find much in large-scale calculators that would handle the needs of a chemistry student.
Maybe the market has improved; maybe I didn’t look hard enough, but now I’m finding a lot more.
Several of the talking calculators have only medium-size buttons, but they often include a ‘learn’ function that identifies the
button function before actually entering it. All of the talking calculators seem to come with earphone jacks.

ViewScreen™ panel presentation tool paired with a TI graphing calculator. Normally set on an overhead projector, this panel can be placed on a sheet of white paper for an individual student.
they also mention their
TI-Presenter™ video interface which can be used with a computer monitor.
Technologies for the Visually Impaired, Inc. is referenced
by several sources, but no longer seems to be on the web (tvi-web.com, domain expired).
Someone at the San Francisco DivCHAS meeting told me about a scientific calculator that would be useful for a student with very low vision.
