I would check with the people at Independence Science:

Gary Supalo is blind and has a Ph.D. In chemistry and can probably help you with your questions.

It is my experience that currently MathML authoring is the only viable solution. While ChemML has been around for a while it is totally unsupported in the AT world.

I would love to hear different.

Happy Wednesday, all!

If you have experience with formatting chemistry formulas to read with JAWS or NVDA, please let me know what process and applications you used. MathType has some limitations in how it will format chemistry information (as it does MathML and not CML), so looking for alternatives. Really really hoping those alternatives are not "hard code in CML," so if there's a WYSIWYG interface, that would be spectacular.

Does anyone have experience with the Chemistry Plug-In for Word<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__chem4word.codeplex.com_&d=AwMFaQ&c=8hUWFZcy2Z-Za5rBPlktOQ&r=REZD8fc2AwufInstfW3L5jSLVS8bjZtAodDOhat7yAI&m=aG5TBfgoKuAdtGuhiklpN9_8sfpj6yppgFxRpbb_2V8&s=v8-YJ5QRukwMfLBKpgFYzoQ7a3YmhMFDvxNOIUX4EkM&e=>? Would it do what I'm looking for?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
