    MathML being written on a blackboard.

    2:00PM – 3:00PM ET on Tuesday, January 22, 2019

    MathML is a markup language used to display equations and other mathematical expressions on the web and in other formats such as ePub and NIMAS. MathML is important for accessibility because it allows equations to be stored as structured text rather than images. Unlike images, structured text can be enlarged with good resolution for low-vision users who need magnification. Blind learners can use screen readers that support MathML to navigate and review the parts of mathematical expressions in the correct order, which is important for understanding complex mathematical expressions. But writing MathML code is not for the faint of heart! In this webinar, we’ll show you some ways you can write and use MathML code with little to no coding. We will then also demonstrate a number of other math accessibility tools from Texthelp, Desmos, the DIAGRAM Center and more!

    Transition services are integral to preparing students for higher education and employment. For many students with disabilities, independent use of accessible educational materials (AEM) and accessible technologies is essential to meeting postsecondary education and career goals, and therefore need to be included in transition plans. Join this session as we unpack the challenges faced by students as they exit high school and enter postsecondary settings, and the role of AEM and accessible technologies in providing equal access to education and employment. Strategies for scaffolding students’ independent use of AEM and accessible technologies as they progress from Kindergarten through high school completion will be shared.
