MathML with JAWS, November 5, 2014

MathML is a language for including mathematical content on Web pages, enabling browsers to present math equations and formulas as they would appear on paper. JAWS provides spoken, natural language descriptions of MathML expressions, using the same terms a teacher would use to explain them in a classroom. There is a written, visual language of math, described by MathML. However, there is also a spoken language used when people discuss math problems. Students will benefit from hearing JAWS describe mathematical expressions as their teachers and peers do.

Speech History with JAWS, December 3, 2014

You can also pan the braille display back to review the last 50 spoken items. The New Speech History feature in JAWS 15 extends this functionality to users who rely on speech more than braille.
