Make Math Accessible with MathJax-Free | Articles to read | Scoop.it

Accessible Pages with MathJax

MathJax was designed with accessibility in mind and has several powerful features to make math easier to see and read, both for ordinary users as well as those with print and learning disabilities.  Two accessibility features, the ability to scale all math in a page or zoom in on a particular equation, are built in to MathJax.  In addition, MathJax works with MathPlayer to make math accessible to screen readers, to screen magnifiers, and to learning disability software.

Criticism is feedback, feedback improves performance- Embrace!

Eliane Fierro's curator insight, June 30, 9:20 PM

Embrace criticism!

Philip Powel Smith's curator insight, Today, 5:04 AM

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

A comprehensive article with many resources. Assistive Technology, often overlapping with educational technology, certainly is supporting ALL students universally in education, as well as adult individuals to access employment, the community, and daily living activities. High tech options or low tech options, modifications, and so many free and low cost options available for leveling the playing field and supporting access in all environments.

The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

Such a Phenomal Article by an excellent author and medical student!

"Studies using cognitive testing and functional M.R.I.’s have demonstrated exceptional three-dimensional and spatial reasoning among dyslexic individuals, which may account for the many successful dyslexic engineers. Similar studies have shown increased creativity and big-picture thinking (or “gist-detection”) in dyslexics, which correlates with the surprising number of dyslexic entrepreneurs, novelists and filmmakers."

 "Today’s educational environment exacerbates dyslexic weaknesses. Schools misidentify poor spelling and slow reading as a lack of intelligence; typically diagnose the condition only after students have fallen behind; and too often fail to provide dyslexic students with the audio and video materials that would help them learn. Until these disadvantages are removed, “disability” most accurately describes what young dyslexics confront."

Central Access Reader-Revolutionary Screen Reader that Reads Math Accurately!

Central Access Reader (text to speech) Reads Math Accurately! Alyssa Marinaccio, Assistive Technology Consultant & Trainer for Assistive Technology for Education, LLC, demonstrates this phenomenal program! CAR was released last week at the CSUN conference.

Diana Petschauer's curator insight, March 28, 4:34 PM

Central Access Reader -A FREE screen reader that reads Math accurately, is going to help so many students and individuals who struggle with literacy, processing, dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADHD, and other print disabilities, as well as those who are visually impaired or aging and simply benefit from hearing the math aloud. 

"Spencer Graffe, a senior in Central Washington University’s Computer Science Program, has helped develop Central Access Reader (CAR), a free computerized text-to-speech reader program that has attracted attention of institutions across the nation.

Marshall Sunnes, Central Access program coordinator and Wendy Holden, Disability and Accessibility Consultant, collaborated to determine what the program should be, how it should look, and what features were most important to include. Graffe had the skills to make it happen.

The program, developed as a tool to assist students with print-related disabilities—those with visual impairments, dyslexia, attention-deficit disorder, or other conditions—reads documents that other text-readers can’t handle, especially those with equations or symbols." Watch the video demonstration, and download CAR for FREE here:

Gifted with LD: Homework at Torture | Articles to read | Scoop.it

"...disabilities that can be mistaken for sloth or carelessness..."

 

Most people have no idea how much time some LD students need to complete standard assignments such as written reports or math worksheets. There is a complete under-appreciation of working memory and processing speed limitations.

Working memory and processing speed will expand - and can improve with certain types of training, but because of lack of awareness, unreasonable expectations can take all sorts of tolls on student's emotional and psychological health.

 

Read Washington Post story here. 

 

DW. Anyone with personal experience of Dyslexia or who suspects they may have the condition will be able to reflect on how ths has impacted on their life - but the positive thing may be the fact that people who think differently  think differently and we do not need people to all think the same. (Please feel free to post your own comment within this article framework starting with your initials as I have done. Sorry my sentences tend to be too long - I am working on it).
