I am an Assistive Technology Specialist with the University of Dayton,
and we are developing a procedure to convert math into accessible
formats for individuals with visual impairments and learning
disabilities. What software does your institution use to convert math
materials, and what criteria was used in selecting this software? do
you scan materials using OCR, type the math by hand, or both? Do you
have blind and/or low vision students participating in the editing
process or reviewing materials for quality assurance? How do you
accommodate the math needs of individuals with learning disabilities?
thank you for your time and I appreciate your insight.
I am a JAWS user and read Nemeth Code so I understand the challenges
posed by alternative production in general as well.

Best Regards,
