Dear EPUB Community Group, WP WG, and WAI Chairs,
 
Associated with a grant from the Department of Education in the USA, we are
looking at how to provide published Chemistry content to the mainstream, and
to persons with disabilities that use Assistive Technology (AT).
 
We are just starting this fact finding phase. ChemML has been mentioned, but
we are not married to any particular solution. I am fairly sure we will need
a great looking presentation, and we will need semantic information that can
be explored chunk-by-chunk using AT.
 
I created an issue, number 66 in the EPUB Community Group with the label
Best Practice (I hope I did this right!)
https://github.com/w3c/publ-cg/issues/66
 
Also, if you would like to email me separately off list, my email is
kerscher@montana.com <mailto:kerscher@montana.com> 
 
So, this kicks off this discovery phase.
 
Best
George
