Currently, there are few solutions available in this area. MathML, once supported by appropriate braille and speech output software, will work, but it is difficult to incorporate MathML into an HTML document at this stage. I understand that most authors use in-line images as a kludge to present the mathematical notation visually. Perhaps as an interim measure they could use LaTeX markup as convenient ALT text (it has the advantage of being relatively compact and well known). The other alternative would be to use OBJECT to incorporate each mathematical expression into a document: <object type\"text/xml" data="equation1.xml" Equation 1, marked up in MathML </object> and likewise for every mathematical expression in the document.Received on Tuesday, 8 December 1998 17:03:21 UTC
