Hello Dan. Use the MathType editor to put math into MS Word. MathType is the most common math editor in the world, and most universities have site licenses. If you need to buy it, the cost is something like $79 from Design Science, http://dessci.com.

>From the MathThype menu, press the "publish to math page" option, and select MathML as the way to represent math. Then you get an XML page, which is XHTML for text and MathML for the math.

Install the free MathPlayer plug-in (from Design Science) in Internet Explorer 6 or 7, and use any common screen reader to read the XML page. The Math is spoken. This is the only way I know to generate audio for math except by using a human being.

Good luck.

Hello Everyone!

I am researching the best methods for converting Math into audio. I currently convert Math into Nemeth code but am lacking the process to convert math into audio. Can someone help me out?
