Hi Howard,

Don't know how far you'll get with this, but if you get it to LaTeX you can
convert it to WinTriangle through LaTeX2Tri. I haven't tried this yet, but
WinTriangle is suppose to read math.

Has anyone else had success with these products?

Subject: [Athen] reading subscripts & superscripts in JAWS

My day for questions:

I'm trying to get JAWS to read subscripts & superscripts (for math
equations). (BTW - I'm using mathtype to convert items in Word "equation
editor" format). However, though I've gone into the "configuration manager"
in JAWS, "speech & sound functions" and specifically set JAWS to read
subscripts & superscripts but with no luck - JAWS is still reading this stuff
like standard text. Any suggestions?
