Webinar: Getting Started with Accessible Math

From the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials

January 18, 2019 8:18 AM

MathML is a markup language used to display equations and other mathematical expressions on the web and in other formats such as ePub and NIMAS. MathML is important for accessibility because it allows equations to be stored as structured text rather than images. Unlike images, structured text can be enlarged with good resolution for low-vision users who need magnification. Blind learners can use screen readers that support MathML to navigate and review the parts of mathematical expressions in the correct order, which is important for understanding complex mathematical expressions. However, writing MathML code is not for the faint of heart! 

In this webinar, the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials will show you some ways you can write and use MathML code with little to no coding. They will also demonstrate a number of other math accessibility tools including Desmosthe DIAGRAM Center and more!

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET 

Register online.

A recording will be posted by the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials about one week after the webinar.  An announcement will be sent to let registered participants know when the recording is available.
