And with the addition of Design Science's existing MathType product, access to mathematical content in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint will be also soon a reality. Although not yet in an official release of NVDA, you can try out this support in a special math build of NVDA. This support also requires ​MathPlayer 4 beta to be installed, optionally along with MathType (for access to math in Microsoft Word and Powerpoint). Both of these can be downloaded from the ​Design Science website. You can read ​Design Science's news announcement as well. This new support allows the NVDA user to read mathematical content in a meaningful way via speech, and also in Nemeth Braille via a Braille display. There is a new math navigation mode added to NVDA which allows you to navigate within the mathematical content, moving through the content in a logical fashion, with the ability to zoom in and out of fractions, parentheses and other logical groups. When positioned on math content, this mode can be activated by pressing NVDA+alt+m. If you find any bugs with this new support, please provide comments on Trac ticket #4673. [Less]
