If they want to have Maths read out for people with VI or dyslexia/dyscalculia then MathPlayerSetup.exe is a free plugin for IE 9 and below which will allow you ot only to render maths beautifully on web pages but it will also read out MathML in a meaningful way. Unfortunately IE10 is not compatible with MathPlayer (and Microsoft have provided no alternatives) so if you want to do maths as a disabled person you can't use Windows8 platform.

Subject: [Xerte] Useful applications...


I'm doing some work with a new Science and Technology academy being set up here in Nottingham: I want to compile a list of useful - and preferably free - applications for them to consider installing for students to use. They are going to provide a mix of desktop and tablet technology, so do you have any particular favourites you'd add?

I'm thinking about all aspects of web design, multimedia, coding, graphics, video, etc. If you could let me know your favourite tools in those categories that would be great,

Thanks a lot,
