[Athen] Using Voice to Input LaTex

Hi Alexa,

Have you looked at MathTalk from Metroplex Computing? There are some demos on the website: http://metroplexvoice.com/

MathTalk is (essentially) a set of macros that act to convert spoken math information into the Scientific Notebook application. Scientific Notebook is a LaTeX editor and so you can open the SN file in a standard text editor and view the code.

So, you would not be working with LaTeX code, specifically, but rather using Scientific Notebook in conjunction with Dragon to author equations. Then, you would open the Scientific Notebook file using a text editor to gain access to the underlying LaTeX code if you need to do further editing.

I have also had students who trained their own vocabulary in Dragon to input LaTeX code. It did take time, but they preferred to work in the code directly rather than use Scientific Notebook.

Take care,

(Or even the graphic math).
