The State of Accessible Math at the 9th European e-Accessibility Forum, Paris
Neil Soiffer will present The State of Accessible Math as an invited speaker at the 9th European e-Accessibility Forum in Paris on On June 8th. So you're probably asking yourself, "what is the state of accessible math?" Well, I am glad you asked. Recent advances in accessible technology now make it possible to use screen readers to read aloud Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and web pages in Firefox that contain math. During Neil's presentation he is going to demonstrate that awesome technology and probably talk a lot about MathPlayer 4's major involvement in making this capability a reality.
If you can't make it to Paris next week, you can always grab a baguette from the bakery, download MathPlayer and a test build of the NVDA screen reader from our website, and give it a try yourself. The baguettes might not be as good, but at least you'll get to experience spoken math in Microsoft Word!
