NVDA handles MathML very well (either HTML+MathML or HTML+MathJax)...just make sure you have MathPlayer installed (https://www.dessci.com/en/products/mathplayer/). You'll probably find the best experience with FireFox. You can use IE11 if you use Enterprise Mode. The latest version of JAWS also now supports math in both IE and Firefox. If you want to use Chrome, then you are stuck using the ChromeVox reader, and it will only work with HTML+MathJax pages.

A nice resource for figuring out what works with what is Benetech's Math Support Finder: http://msf.mathmlcloud.org/
It isn't fully populated yet (it is a volunteer effort), but it is growing over time.

Subject: [WebAIM] fractions and other math bits

Hi all,

I searched the archives, and the latest discussion on this topic was two
years ago. What's the current best method for accessible math on web
pages? I looked at MathML and MathJax, but that didn't work so well with
NVDA. The demo page that I looked at is:
What is everyone on this list using for math these days?

Thank you,
