Does anyone have any experience with OpenStax textbooks and screenreaders? We have a blind student that will be using the following two books: Calculus Vol 1<https://openstax.org/details/books/calculus-volume-1> and College Physics<https://openstax.org/details/books/calculus-volume-1>. In looking at the books, we are finding really inconsistent experiences. Sometimes JAWS reads the math well – other times there are massive delays. It skips equations sometimes and reads them others with the same settings.

Has anyone worked with these two books with JAWS, NVDA or VoicOver? I’d love to hear about it.
