Can I say a big thank you to anyone who has examples of accessible Science, Technology and Mathematics examples, as we have also been looking into these issues and I would love to use your video as an example of how JAWS can work with MathML.

Thank you for sharing this information.

Best wishes E.A.

Subject: [WebAIM] Screenreaders and MathML

Hi -
We are doing some screen reader tests on Math ML. See:

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQL7Woe3hT4
- produced using tex4ht (.tex to .xht)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIxEDl8gvdU
- produced using MSWord to .xht

Does anyone know how to have the screen reader ignore the table that the equation is formatted with? CSS won't really work because I can't ask the Math faculty to all learn CSS. Any other ideas?
