[Blindmath] Math ML

There's an "enterprise mode" setting in IE11 that, when set, should allow MathPlayer to work in some, but not all, pages which contain MathML. I don't have access to any machines running IE11, so I cannot test it myself. I believe this works in a similar way to the "compatibility view" setting which is available in IE10. For instance, when I set IE10 to compatibility view, MathPlayer will run on some pages containing MathML, although it will crash on others due to a bug. There are more details here:

Hello,

Does anyone know if the Design Science Math Player will work on Internet
Explorer 11?  I heard a rumor that Design Science was trying to develop a
more robust math reader.

There is not a yes or no answer to this question since MathML is not a
program.  MathML is an international standard XML specification for the
electronic or digital represention of mathematics.  Here is the official
link to the latest information.
http://www.w3.org/Math/

MathML is not intended to be read by humans although it, like other XML
formats, can be read directly if necessary. Typically MathML is converted to
typeset math for visual reading or to braille math for tactile reading.
Because of its flexiblity and comprehensive nature MathML is the standard
format used for mathematics in EPUB 3 documents.

There are many different programs that can be used to produce MathML from
various kinds of math entry.  Some of these programs are more accessible
than others.

HTH, Susan Jolly
