Accessible elementary math with MathPlayer and MathML 3
In a previous post, I broke the news that MathML 3 is going to be a proposed recommendation. I also bragged about MathPlayer having 97% coverage for MathML 3 features. Support for the visual display of elementary math went into what will be MathPlayer 3 over nine months ago (see my earlier post about MathML 3). As many people know, MathML is the way to make math accessible. Now that MathML 3 supports elementary math, that too can be made accessible. Here's a demonstration of the next version of MathPlayer displaying and speaking elementary math:
We're still working on refinements to what is spoken. If you have suggestions for how to improve the speech for either example, please let us know!
