If it does them holistically rather than giving the TeX code then that is better. <BR/><BR/>For me the problems with MathML are browser issues. Why can't the browsers come with fonts for rendering maths and why can't Microsoft embed it into Internet Explorer?Andyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17784856869056663331noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-974646706961868356.post-48076967929181272482008-04-19T21:36:00.000-07:002008-04-19T21:36:00.000-07:00It is true that accessibility in mathematics via M...It is true that accessibility in mathematics via MathML has not yet advanced to the point where it does a 100% job. However, it has come a long way and is still progressing. While math accessibility via speech generated from MathML is not perfect, it is still a better solution than converting LaTeX to speech or braille UNLESS the person in question already knows LaTeX. After all, it is as linear as MathML generated speech. Since most of the people that do math in the world do not know TeX or LaTeX, they would have even more to learn. Math speech generated from MathML, on the other hand, would be closer to how math is spoken. Even mathematicians who live and breath TeX don't use it to speak mathematics to each other. Can you imagine two mathematicians discussing an equation at the whiteboard with "backslash" this and "backslash" that?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
