MathML Software - Accessibility


Index

Accessible Electronic Mathematical Content Project

Entry updated: January 2005

Categories: Research Projects, Accessibility

Home Page: http://www.dessci.com/accessibility

Design Science is investigating ways of making mathematical expressions accessible to people with print disabilities, including blindness, low vision, dyslexia and other learning disabilities. The project seeks to develop software that enables screen readers and other assistive technology products to seamlessly handle embedded MathML. To date, Design Science extended MathPlayer to speak and synchronously highlight MathML expressions in Web pages, and has worked with leading assistive technology vendors to integrate speech generation, navigation and highlighting for math and text. This work was supported in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Future plans include improving algorithms, and extending support to other electronic document formats.

AudioMath 2005

Entry updated: September 2005

Home Page: http://lpf-esi.fe.up.pt/~audiomath/index_en.html

Author: Helder Ferreira

AudioMath is a research project, since 2003, that studies the MathML Audio Rendering.

During this project some tools have been created: AudioMathEngine (a set of algoritms capable to convert MathML into a comprehensive text that can be spoken out), AudioMathGUI (a nice demo GUI that allows the user to navigate through MathML expressions and listen to them), and AudioMathWEB (an on-line conversion service, working as an accessibility service).

Currently it only supports European Portuguese but you can try it in: http://lpf-esi.fe.up.pt/~audiomath/demo/index_en.html

BraMaNet

Vendor: Mission Handicap

BraMaNet is An XSL Style Sheet that translates MathML (Presentation tags only) into French Mathematical Braille. It has a user-friendly VB interface and can be used together with MathType to translate Word Documents into Braille for printing.

Group UMA (Universal Math Accessability)

Entry updated: January 2005

Categories: Research Projects, Accessibility

Home Page: http://karshmer.lklnd.usf.edu/~igroupuma/

The work of Group UMA is to build automatic translators between various Braille based math notations as well as presentation tools to help the users better read complex equations. Then, for example, a blind mathematician in Germany can convert his Marburg math representation to Nemeth and email it to a colleague in the United States, or into French notarion to send to a French colleague

LAMBDA Project

Entry updated: January 2005

Categories: Research Projects, Accessibility

Home Page: http://www.lambdaproject.org

Linear Access to Mathematic for Braille Device and Audio-synthesis: An integrated and innovative system to manage scientific documents with Braille peripherals and voice synthesis.

The Lambda system is based upon integration between a linear code, which can be immediately converted through MathML, and a mathematical editor which is designed to meet the educational needs of both students and teachers. The whole system is flexible and entirely configurable. There are different mathematical Braille codes in different countries, so the Lambda project allows customisation of the Braille code to meet the local standard. At the same time it ensures portability by its foundation in the MathML standard code.

MathJax

Entry updated: November 2012

Home Page: http://www.mathjax.org/

Vendor: MathJax

MathJax is an open source, JavaScript engine for mathematics that works in all modern browsers. Mathjax accepts LaTeX, ASCIImath and MathML input. These input formats are converted to MathML which is rendered as HTML-CSS (using webfonts when needed) or as SVG. MathJax loads all necessary components and fonts dynamically for client-side rendering; it does not require client-side installation of any plugins or fonts. In addition, MathJax offers zoom features, copy&paste and works seemlessly with MathPlayer for more advanced accessibility.

MathPlayer
