MathPlayer Download and Installation

Download MathPlayer for free!

Design Science MathPlayer™ enables Internet Explorer to display mathematical notation in web pages. It is based on MathML technology and requires Internet Explorer for Windows version 6.0 and later. We make MathPlayer available for free in order to foster the adoption of MathML in the Math, Science, and Education communities.

MathPlayer 3.0 offers support for Internet Explorer 9, MathML 3, enhanced speech (multiple languages and styles for improved comprehension among those with reading-related learning disabilities), and improved rendering. MathPlayer does not work well in Internet Explorer 10 due to IE 10 bugs, and not at all in IE 11. If you want to see math in web pages, we recommend sticking with IE9 and not upgrading to Windows 8 or IE 10/11.
