Do any of your students use Jaws to read math equations produced by the Canvas math equation editor? I cannot get it to read the equations (e.g., quadratic formula) properly. HELP!!!

Hi Sarah,

Do you have a screenshot of the equation you can share?

Is this in the equation creation process, or after it is saved to a page/other?

The equations that are created through the equation editor *should* be adding a minimum of LaTex as the alt text of the equation, and a maximum of integrating a MathML version of the equation after the image as screenreader only content when a page/question text/etc. is saved.

I'm just wondering what the context where you cannot get the equation to read is.

Here is a video of how Jaws is reading the equations I created using the math editor. This is confusing for students.

I have heard that installing MathPlayer will help. I tried installing MathPlayer yesterday but it would not install properly. I am going to try again.

Hi Sarah,

I don't see a video in your post. Can you host it on Youtube and include it so that I can hear?

Hi again,

Sorry, someone just pointed out that the PPT contains audio to me.

Did you create all 3 of those equations into one Equation image or did you create each one individually using the equation editor?

Thank you again for your help. Do you know how to get the screen reader to read 5! as 5 factorial?
