[BlindMath] Question for LaTeX users

I generally write in my text editor of choice, then generate the PDF files using LaTeX on the command line or directly from within Emacs. I also create HTML versions, as needed, using tools such as lwarp and TeX4HT. You may find the latexmk package useful, as it can run the TeX engine and associated tools in the correct sequence to create a completed PDF document.

For example, it will run BibTeX or Biber to resolve citations and bibliography entries.

Subject: [BlindMath] Question for LaTeX users

     I am looking for information on software for working with LaTeX. I
downloaded both

TeXnicCenter and texworks from Miktex.

With both packages, I checked for and set accessibility options.

So far, I found that the editor for texworks is accessible, but I couldn't
print or save a usable pdf file.

On the other hand, the TexNicCenter package editor was inaccessible, but I
could print a file.

The object of this work is to put together an article to help students get
started using LaTex. I do know of Dr. Gardner's articles on using MathType
and Word. Thanks for any comments/suggestions.
