Help Make Math Accessible in Microsoft Edge web browser - Your Vote Counts!

Math formula: xy divided by n

A few of us here in the DIAGRAM community have been hard at work coming up with the best way to get accessible math into EPUB and Microsoft’s new Edge web browser has the ability to open EPUBs. Unfortunately, MathML is currently not supported in Edge and we would like Microsoft to expose the MathML contained within the EPUB (or mathML on the web itself) to Assistive Technology. There is a feature request to do this and we need your help to help vote for this feature to get implemented. Here is the link to the issue and where you can vote to get their developers to implement this much needed  accessibility feature. Once you are on this page just click on the Vote button and put in your name and email address and if you wouldn’t mind selecting the 3 votes option to help us get this approved quickly.

Thank you for your vote on this!

Editor's Note:  MathML is the markup language for describing mathematical notations - meaning that MathML is what makes math accessible for students who use a screen reader. When you vote using the link above, you can also add a comment about why MathML is important.
