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 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

This is an open-source drag and drop equation editor written in Java. Once an expression is created the user can convert it into a variety of different linear syntax for mathematics, including MathML, LaTeX, Maple, Maxima or any user defined style. It is possible for the user to create an .xml file containing a custom output format without requiring the applet to be recompiled.

Design Science is conducting a project to develop infrastructure for enhanced search capabilities for documents containing mathematics. The project has three broad goals: to formulate, coordinate and disseminate best-practice guidelines for facilitating the searching and indexing of documents containing mathematics; to create a test bed collection of documents suitable for conducting usability testing for math-aware search systems; and to investigate several specific algorithms for searching mathematics. The project is support in part by a National Science Digital Library grant from the National Science Foundation.

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

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.
