[BlindMath] [ctan-ann at ctan.org: New on CTAN: axessibility]

Hello All,

I followed the development of this LateX package as a tester, so I would 
like to answer some question

that came up in the list.

1. Without any dictionary, Jaws and NVDA only read the raw of LteX 
source embedded in the text by the package. To

have it read as if it were natural speech, you can download the 
dictionaries you find in the Axessdicts folder of this repository: 
https://github.com/integr-abile?tab=repositories.

2. As for VoiceOver, in the tests we made with it the accessibility 
problems come from the difficulties this screenreaders has in processing 
.pdf files.

Kind regards.

Sara Kobal
