Expanding Audio Access to Mathematics Expressions by Students with Visual Impairments via MathML

Design Science has partnered with ETS on a three year Institute of Education Sciences development grant to significantly improve accessibility of mathematical content in the classroom. The three main areas of focus are improved speech, the ability to navigate larger math equations, and to allow math to be read in Word documents. To learn more about these efforts and the progress we've made, see the grant status pages.
