Hello Neil,
It fixed it just fine.  Thank you for your help.  I had to go to the 
information bar and allow active x controls to run.  I have found that for 
just about all the examples I dont need to have math player to speak the 
expression.  It reads just fine using my screen reader.  Another question 
for you.  Is math type accessible for screen reader users to use.  I am 
trying to find a way for me to do my homework in microsoft word.
Thank you,
Greg Wocher
