NVDA and Math
Sally Kiebdaj
Hello all, To circle back on a few threads earlier this fall, I have a few questions about accessing math content with NVDA. The NVDA user guide references MathPlayer. However, MathPlayer's site doesn't show any updates more recent than 2016. Is this accurate? If so, does it work with any of the newer browsers? For Lamda, does the addon function outside of the Lambda application? I'm only dipping into linear algebra as a prereq for a data science course so am not sure if getting the Lamda application is necessary/advisable. Does the Lambda addon read math in webpages or word on its own? Lastly, how does access8math work with NVDA? Is it also reliant on the MathPlayer? so far, I've been unable to get the NVDA math hotkey (NVDA + alt+ m) to work under any circumstances, including in places that ChromeVox correctly identifies MathJax. Any and all guidance on how to start getting this working would be a huge help. I haven't ever done math through a screen reader and haven't done math of any kind since before 2005, not counting college stats classes when I had some residual vision. Thank you in advance! Sally

Dear Sally,

It has been a very long while since Math Player was updated, yes. Last I checked with them, they responded saying they were unaware of the future roadmap of Math Player. Also, if you can't get NVDA+Alt+M to enter a Math expression, try pressing Enter instead; it often works. Unfortunately, I am unable to be of much help with your other questions. Thanks.

Regarding access8math, it doesn't need MathPlayer. Actually I
couldn't figure out how to use MathPlayer either, but Access8Math
works perfectly. But I only tested it on wikipedia formulas, not
sure how it works with other types of formulas.

you could also do a Google search for the free math viewer ad on for NVDA. It will take standard latex and ascii math and will convert it to math ML and put it in a browse mode buffer for you to review with speech or braille. As long as math player is installed first.
