MathPlayer Download and Installation
Download the MathPlayer 4 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
MathPlayer 4 inserts buttons in Word & PowerPoint on Windows for self-voicing. (This feature requires MathType 6.8 or later.)
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 or Windows 10 (even in enterprise mode) due to bugs in IE11 on Windows 10.
Note 1: If you download using Firefox on Windows 8 or
later, Windows "Smart Screen" may warn you that the signature of this download
is unknown. You can proceed to download it from that point, but to get the
Download button, you need to click on "more info".
Note 2: If you intend to use MathPlayer with
Microsoft Word or PowerPoint 2010 or later, please be aware
that MathPlayer will only work with the 32-bit versions of
these products. If you're using 64-bit Windows, you may still be (and probably
are) running 32-bit MS Office. To verify, open Word or PowerPoint, and in the
File tab, click Account. On the right, click About Word (or PowerPoint). Near
the top, it will list the complete version number, including bit-level. This

- Choose the type of speech most appropriate for your needs.
- 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.
- 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".
- If you use a refreshable braille display, click on the Braille tab and
set the braille code to prefer.
