Mathematics in Microsoft Word


Bruno Aníbal Prieto González
 

Hello!
I am writing to see if there is a way to improve the reading of
mathematics written with the Microsoft Word equation editor,
correcting some things, taking into account that even before the
support of Microsoft UI Automation for Word there was almost no
support for this function.
I offer money for this purpose, perhaps developing an add-on for NVDA
or the best alternative that exists.

I remain attentive to your comments, thank you very much in advance.

If you only need to read the best option is to convert the word
documents to LaTeX if you knew LaTeX that is. I am personally using GrindEQ
which isn't free. If you don't want to pay pandoc seems to be capable of
performing this conversion, however I haven't tried it myself.

Yes, I have. It has no support for Polish Braille so it is useless for
me.

Hello,
Yes, I usually work with LaTeX at the university, but this is focused
on primary and secondary education. The idea is that you can read
equations directly from the word, without making changes, thinking of
people with a more basic use of the computer. This is already
possible, but with complicated equations or less common symbols it
doesn't work as well.

The ability for NVDA to natively support reading and interacting with equations created with Microsoft Equation Editor would be great, as this would eliminate the need for, let's say, teachers to create a specialized version of math materials that uses Latex/MathType equations just for someone who relies on NVDA.

While I generally agree that having better accessibility of Equation
editor would be nice the biggest issue here is the problem of Braille.
With both MathType and LaTeX the solutions are already there in the
former case MathPlayer has Braille tables for many languages and in the
latter LaTeX_access is a solution. Expecting Braille tables for math
symbols included in LibLouis for every language is simply not realistic.
I'd like also to point out that you can convert materials from Equation
Editor to LaTeX and I believe to MathType, so usually there is no
additional preparation of material required.
