Download MathPlayer for free!

Design Science MathPlayer™ enables Microsoft Internet Explorer to display mathematical notation in web pages. It also makes math accessible by enhancing Internet Explorer such that mathematical expressions can be enlarged and spoken for people with reading-related learning disabilities. 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. Download MathPlayer>

Authoring math web pages with MathML

Using MathML to put math in your web pages has many advantages over using images or PDFs. Find out how easy it is to create web pages containing MathML using MathType, Microsoft Word, and other tools on our Authoring math web pages with MathML page.

Making MathPlayer available to your readers

If you publish web pages containing MathML, readers using Internet Explorer will need to install MathPlayer on their computers. Obviously, one way to do this is to have them download MathPlayer from our website like you probably did. To get some tips on how best to communicate this to your readers using our MathPlayer Logo Program, as well as some alternative distribution options, visit Making MathPlayer Available to Your Readers.

MathPlayer and MathML technology

MathML is an XML-based language for encoding mathematics that was standardized by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in 1998. Many software packages including browsers, editors, computer algebra programs and publishing software use MathML to communicate. Design Science has been involved in MathML technology since it was invented. Find out about our current Math Accessibility Technology efforts.
