Jayme and I just met with Pearson reps last week. I know it does not solve
your current issue, but Pearson is working on ensuring that MyMathLab will
work with magnification software and screen readers. According to their
presentation, that functionality should be incorporated into a version of
the program that will be released this summer. Pearson's intention is also
to make 52 of their leading math books available as accessible MathML

I never hold my breath for these promises, but we spoke with one of their
technical folks who is working on the project and it sounded very hopeful!

Subject: [Athen] screen magnification with MyMathLabs Plus

Hello all!

We are struggling with getting ZoomText to play nice with MyMathLabs Plus.
Seems it will work well for the student for the homework sections, but not
on tests. When using ZoomText for the test, the student reports that all
the numbers are 'squished' together.

Any thoughts on this? Is anyone using MAGic or some other screen
magnification that works? (The magnifier built in to MS Windows is NOT
sufficient for this student.)

THANKS in advance for ANY helpful thoughts!!
