Dr. Betsey Doane shared her experience teaching math for over 50 years and the importance of making math accessible to all students, including those with visual impairments. She began by introducing the software MathType, essential for creating accessible math content. The software integrates into Word and allows users to write math that is accessible to both screen readers and braille displays. Her efforts truly embody the concept of Advanced Math Made Accessible.

Dr. Doane explained the basics of LaTeX, a text-based language used for writing math. She demonstrated how to input and translate common math expressions such as fractions, square roots, and equations using LaTeX in Word. Her instructions included using the Focus 40 Braille Display and ensuring proper configurations for students to view math content in braille. This approach makes advanced math more accessible for everyone.

She emphasized the importance of understanding both the visual and non-visual ways of presenting math, highlighting that students need the right software and commands to work effectively. By using LaTeX and MathType, both sighted and blind students can access and solve math problems, ensuring inclusion in any classroom setting. This makes advanced math accessible and easier to understand.

She highlighted the use of MathType software, which integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Word, allowing users to create and present math content that is accessible through screen readers like JAWS and braille displays like the Focus 40. Dr. Doane explained how MathType enables students and educators to write complex equations, such as fractions, square roots, and exponents, in both visual and non-visual formats. This ensures that blind students can access the same content as their sighted peers, making advanced math more accessible.

## Advanced Math Made Accessible with LaTex

Dr. Doane also provided an introduction to LaTeX, a powerful text-based language used for writing mathematical expressions. She demonstrated how to write math using LaTeX syntax, such as using backslashes for commands like fractions and square roots. By using LaTeX in Word with MathType, math content can be rendered correctly on both screen readers and braille displays, making it easier for blind students to follow along in class and complete assignments. This is another way to make advanced math accessible.

Furthermore, Dr. Doane stressed the importance of configuring braille displays correctly, ensuring that input is set to computer braille and output is set to grade 2. She provided step-by-step instructions for adjusting these settings on the Focus 40 Braille Display, ensuring that students can navigate math content effectively, contributing to the overall goal of making advanced math accessible.

In conclusion, Dr. Doane encouraged educators to adopt these tools and techniques to create an inclusive learning environment where both sighted and blind students can excel in mathematics. Her detailed instructions and practical advice offer a clear path toward accessible math education for all.
