MathML Accessibility

Frédéric Wang wrote a nice post about MathML Accessibility that has a comparison table between NVDA, VoiceOver and Orca.

I promised to Frédéric to provide a sample of the support of Firefox OS’ screen reader and you can find it here (it is a ogg file with the video in theora and the audio in vorbis).


For the test I used this app.


The screen reader doesn’t support MathML. So far it only speak the numbers.

Enabling Screen Reader

Right now you need to go into the developer settings to enable listing the screen reader at the accessibility settings and them go to the accessibility settings to enable the screen reader.


If you want to ddisable the screen reader you will have to be a little patient!
