Subject: [Blindmath] Accessible visual objects by a screen reader

Dear members,

Anyone can suggest any available software feature of any screen reader capable of describing e graphical, geometrical, shape object in a word, excel file with out the alt text, description. Especially in context of the mathematical education.

Can a screen reader comprehend visual objects without the associated data or description, kindly share the information to me.

Also is there a way to directly input / draw  a chart or a shape into a computer application.

Your help shall be valuable to me.

Kiran S Deshpande
