[BlindMath] disabling math ML in place of LaTex

MathJax utilizes LaTex, does it not? Don't know how to work with it just yet. Actually, I've not seen math presented in this way recently on Wikipedia--maybe it varies? Here's an example:
x 2 + 2 x − 2 = 0 {\displaystyle 1)\ x^{2}+2x-2=0}
Isn't the second part, where it says "desplaystyle, an aspect of LaTex?. Sometimes the exponents in the first halves, before the {\ do not show as superscripts.
But I have elsewhere seen what you are describing Zach.

I believe the equations in Wikipedia are generated with, or in accordance with, or some form thereof with MathJax. MathJax is a JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all browsers, but is kind of confusing at first. https://www.mathjax.org/ I find I have to press enter to open the equation, then I can navigate by element with the left and right arrows.
Using up or down arrow allows you to expand an element, say exponents, or values enclosed in parenthesis, or logarithms. Hitting escape exits out of equation navigation. I'm using JAWS 17.0 and haven't had to install any plug-ins to use MathJax in IE.

Hi there Tyler et al.,
This won't be of much help, but I'm wondering about math on Wikipedia myself, although I'm still only semi-literate with LaTex. I've found that with JAWS, Math Player, and Firefox I can get easier access to what I assume to be Math ML math formulae by pressing enter on equations I see--I'm not sure if the instances of this were specially marked up or what. Is math ML particularly prone to displaying in an odd manor? Browsers can switch between Math ML and LaTex--can't they?
I and many of my colleagues in Environmental science don't seem to have the pressing need to know LaTex, and thus I've not been directly instructed; thus I've found web content to be often difficult, but I am still a greenhorn when it comes to dealing with this biz in smart tactical fashion.
Best,
Trevor

all:
I'm having a bit of an irritating issue.
I use Wikpedia for all kinds of stuff and most of the time there are formulas that I want to use/look at, but can't. Previously I'd just read the LaTex on wikipedia, which was sometimes messy but doable. Now instead of LaTex I'm getting this god awful math ML thing where it chunks the entire formula into one cell. By that I mean you right arrow once and get space and right arrow again and you get the whole thing.
There's no copypaste or anything. I don't know where this rendering is taking place, but it's always been irritating anyway because it does so much weird translation. Does anyone know if there's a way to disable this and just go back to good old LaTex?
Thanks,
