As a blind Math user, I would like up-to-date guidance on how to access Math
Freedom Scientific, the maker of the JAWS screen reader, has recently added enhanced support for consuming Math in JAWS 16. We should probably provide a reference to this information, along with tips for how to consume math to our own documentation:
Steps to Reproduce
Reason for Variance
User Impact Summary
As of now, responding to this would mean stating something like "as of 2 releases ago, JAWS treats Math the way you would hope it would." Sometime in the future, it would be good to have some docs about screen readers and keyboard navigation as described in DOC-3557.
We do not; I did intend to work with on a keyboard user's quick start guide ()
You might consider expanding http://edx.readthedocs.io/projects/edx-guide-for-students/en/latest/completing_assignments/SFD_mathformatting.html beyond "Entering..." to include some a11y info, though it wouldn't necessarily be easy for screen reader users to find.
The course authors' guide has http://edx.readthedocs.io/projects/edx-partner-course-staff/en/latest/accessibility/best_practices_course_content_dev.html#use-best-practices-for-mathematical-content where you might add information and suggest that course teams make their learners aware of it.
I was thinking this could be a good bytesize issue for an Outreachy applicant. Can you confirm and let us know what sections of the documentation should be updated?
Is this for learners, course authors, or both?
