[Blindmath] MathML: JAWS does not render greek symbols or minuses and NVDA doesn't render any formulae/symbols

It can be very frustrating.  Try to save your word file as a .doc instead
of the .docx that windows 7 automatically uses.  I have had trouble with
that in the past but it seems to work if I save the Word as a 97 - 2003
.doc

Best of luck

 Why not use MathPlayer 3 (could work better)?
