### How to Make Accessible Math Content on the Web?

Mathematics is a key component of education and the foundation for many careers and opportunities. However, math content on the web can pose significant accessibility

Accessible math allows students, educators, and researchers to access and use mathematical content in a digital context.

MathML and AsciiMath are two important formats for representing mathematical equations and formulas in an accessible manner.

These formats allow equations to be displayed on the web and in other digital contexts, making it easier for students, educators, and researchers to access and use mathematical content.

MathML is a standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It uses tags and attributes to encode the structure and content of mathematical expressions, making it easy to display equations on the web and in other digital contexts.

AsciiMath is a simpler way of representing mathematical equations and formulas using ASCII characters. This format allows equations to be represented using only the characters that are found on a standard keyboard, making it easy to type and share equations in text-based environments such as email and social media.

**Examples of accessible math:**

Formula without MathML / ASCII coding will be displayed as-

{\displaystyle x={\frac {-b\pm {\sqrt {b^{2}-4ac}}}{2a}}}x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 – 4ac}}{2a}

With Math coding (MathML, ASCII or LaTeX) as input, and HTML and CSS as outputs-

MathML and AsciiMath services are often used by students, educators, and researchers who need to share mathematical content digitally.

By using specialized software and trained professionals, AEL can help to ensure that equations and formulas are displayed accurately and consistently.

This makes it easier for students, educators, and researchers to access and use mathematical content.

Tactile graphics are drawings that can be felt by touch. They are used to convey information that is usually shown in visual form, such as

When you hear the letter A, you instantly imagine the structure of that alphabet. However, this might not be the case with a person who
