Hi Susan,

MathML in either an HTML or XHTML file should work fine with Safari and VoiceOver...at least it does for me. However, I note that there is something weird going on with MathJax, which used to work fine. It doesn't want to read the math properly and page navigation gets stuck on math islands. I don't know if this is due to recent changes in MathJax, but I know that it used to work fine. If you are creating content from MathType, I suggest avoiding the MathJax options in the Publish as MathPage dialogue.

Okay, I’ve now tried it all. I have a low vision student in math/computer science that refuses to switch to a Windows machine or to use any type of screenreader. I’ve tried every available file type in every available browser and application.

Epub3 in ibooks with Voiceover (it skips punctuation or adds random punctuation and I can’t figure out how to more finely tune the verbosity)

Word with MathType in Word

MathML in Safari (I get a javascript error)

MathML in Firefox (won’t open, just sits and spins)

Help help help!!
