Pearson Accessible Equation Editor

Dooley, Sam
Hello all,

I would like to announce the Pearson Accessible Equation Editor.


The accessible equation editor allows sighted and visually-impaired users to enter math expressions into a web page, which can immediately be read by another user looking at the same page.  The equation editor supports real-time translations from printed math to braille, and from braille to printed math.  Details for how to use the editor may be found on the web site.

This equation editor has been used in the Pearson TestNav Assessment System to collect over 15 million instances of Content MathML within the last year, and has recently been extended to support the output and input of Nemeth Braille using a refreshable braille device.

The braille support in the equation editor is still a very early alpha version, but already includes a wide range of math notations.  Web site access is free while testing is ongoing to bring the editor to a product-ready state.  User documentation is also forthcoming, and so your feedback on any aspect of the editor would be greatly appreciated.

I will be presenting four talks related to the equation editor at the CSUN conference in San Diego from March 23-25, and I would be very interested to meet with anyone on this list who will be there.
