Selected Setup

Notes

Platform Windows 7
Assistive technology JAWS 16.0.2339-17.0.2007 (Apr 2015 - May 2016)

For now, math content on a web page or in the Math Viewer is only spoken and displayed visually by JAWS and is not shown in braille. Refer to JAWS16 documentation online.

  • MathJax no longer a requirement
  • Math Viewer is displayed visually and both IE and Firefox are supported

Math Viewer displays the mathematics that a JAWS user is interacting with in a separate window. This is different from the visual rendering of MathML provided by a native renderer or MathJax on the webpage itself.

Application Internet Explorer (desktop) 11
File format HTML

Download sample HTML file with MathML equations to test out other browsers.

Required Renderer MathJax

You do not need to download any plug-ins. MathJax is an open-source technology that runs in all modern browsers to render math and is included as a script on the page by the website author.

To learn more about this technology, visit the MathJax website.

Testing Status Tested

Notes

This setup supports Visual-Displays and Speech-Reads. For Speech Reads, JAWS will not read the equation until virtual cursor focus has landed on the equation using left/right arrow keys. Speech-Sound Effects is also available using the JAWS Speech and Sounds Manager.

Per Freedom Scientific's documentation, all of the visual and speech access modes should all be available using Math Viewer, but we were unable get the remaining options to work during our tests.

Tested using JAWS 17.0.1377, Windows 7 Ultimate, IE 11, Focus 14 Blue.
