Mathematics accessibility is an important topic for inclusive education. In this paper, authors make [[Wikipedia]]'s repository of mathematical formulas accessible by providing a natural language description of its more than 420,000 formulas using a well-researched sub-language. Authors also contribute by targeting Spanish speakers, for whom assistive technologies, particularly domain-specific technologies like the one described here, are scarce. Authors focus on the semantics of formulas rather than their visual appearance allowed us to generate verbalizations with a precision of approximately 80% of understandable descriptions, as shown in an evaluation with sighted users.

Improving Accessibility to Mathematical Formulas: the Wikipedia Math Accessor - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2011, written by Leo Ferres and José Fuentes Sepúlveda.

Overview

Mathematics accessibility is an important topic for inclusive education. Authors tackle the problem of accessing a large repository of mathematical formulas, by providing a natural language description of the more than 350,000 Wikipedia formulas using a well-researched sub-language targetting Spanish speakers, for whom assistive technologies, particularly domain-specific technologies like the one described here, are scarce.
