Hi all,

Does anybody have suggestions for supporting a student who is having
difficulty with math and other stem-related material being read aloud? We
use Kurzweil here at our institution and as I'm sure many of you know, it's
not really the best tool to read material with different symbols, equations
and things like that.

I'm curious to hear what other folks are doing to help their students. This
might mean going back to the drawing board and really trying to figure out
where the need is and where it's coming from for the tts.

Thanks for your insights!
