MATHEMATICS, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
4 October 2007
Design Science has released MathPlayer 2.1, with increased support for Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7. It includes new features to help students with vision and learning disabilities.
MathPlayer's math-to-speech technology has been enhanced to synchronously highlight the mathematics as it is spoken, which has been shown to help people with learning disabilities such as dyslexia. MathPlayer 2.1 also supports DotsPlus, a braille math format for use with Tiger braille printers. It seamlessly integrates with leading screen reader software, such as JAWS, Window-Eyes, HAL, Read & Write, and BrowseAloud.
