MathPlayer Download and Installation

Download the MathPlayer 4 public beta for free!

Design Science MathPlayer™ 4 works with NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) screen reader to speak and Braille math content in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Internet Explorer and Firefox. For this to work, you also need to download the NVDA test build that works with the MathPlayer 4 beta.

MathPlayer continues to support both visual rendering and math speech in Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11 (requires Enterprise Mode in IE11). MathPlayer does not work well in Internet Explorer 10 due to IE 10 bugs.

Installation Instructions

Once the MathPlayer file has completely downloaded to your computer, run MathPlayerSetup.exe file. If your browser offers to "Open this file once downloaded", click Open. Otherwise use Windows Explorer to open the download folder, and then double-click MathPlayerSetup.exe.

If you use assistive technology, make sure you open the MathPlayer Control Panel (see MathPlayer User Manual) and...

  1. Choose the type of speech most appropriate for your needs.
  2. Click on "Optimize for accessibility".
  3. Either leave the language as "document language" or choose the language in which you wish to hear all of your math. You must have a speech engine capable of speaking in the chosen language.
  4. Set the amount of speech you want to hear. If you are an expert, you might prefer a "terse" reading but if you are learning math or don't use it frequently, you might want to choose "full".

Checking Installation

The MathPlayer Installation Check tests your installation, reports the version currently installed on your computer, and lets you know if you have the most up-to-date version.
