Spoken Math Survey

I got this from a list I’m on. Someone is trying to figure out how to render math equations in a comprehensible way when they are presented by speech only. It’s a bitch to be able to take a math equation and understand all the intricacies of root symbols, exponents and brackets when you’re dealing in speech alone. Some of these details get glazed over by JAWS. The info is below.

Dear All,
As part of a research project in the area of enhancing spoken mathematics equations for visually impaired users the following survey has been created to obtain feedback for the design of a novel system. We would be very grateful if you could take the time to complete the following design survey. The survey contains 5 sections and should take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete and will be online until Wednesday 21st of April.
It is available here. If you have any questions regarding the survey please do not hesitate to contact me (emma.murphy@computing.dcu.ie)

All best wishes,


So if you have the inclination, some time and a headset, you know what to do.
