  • MathML Cloud CSUN 2014 http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun
  • Page 2http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun State of MathML Adoption ●  Chrome and IE 11 do not support MathML ●  EPUB/KF8 reading system support poor ●  http://idpf.org/sites/default/ files/file_attach/ sanders_edupub_slides.pdf
  • Page 3http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun As Result ●  Many publishers convert MathML to SVG/ PNG images and throw away the MathML ●  Accessibility is lost
  • Page 4http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun A Solution 1.  A publisher or other content creator using a MathML Cloud integrated product, such as an InDesign plugin or a proprietary production toolchain, submits MathML code to the MathML Cloud API
  • Page 5http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun A Solution 2.  The MathML is converted to an SVG image using MathJax. There is an option to further convert the SVG to a PNG image. The MathML is also processed by the integrated ChromeVox math utilities to generate a textual description.
  • Page 6http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun A Solution 3.  The API returns HTML/SVG code and the PNG image. The HTML code contains Schema.org accessibility metadata and a link to the source MathML. The HTML and images can be inserted into a web page or an EPUB 2/3.
  • Page 7http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun A Solution 4.  The end user can choose to click to MathMLCloud.net to access and navigate the original MathML. They can also provide feedback to the publisher and Benetech as to the quality of the automatically generated description.
  • Page 8http://tinyurl.com/mathml-cloud-csun Who Can Benefit? ●  Publishers and their Partners: e.g., Pearson and Aptara ●  DSS Offices and other AIM Providers ●  Assistive Technology Providers: e.g., Freedom Scientific ●  End User Platforms: e.g., Courseload ,CourseSmart/ VitalSource, Google, Inkling, and Nook Media ●  LMS, MOOC and other Ed Tech: e.g., Moodle and Coursera ●  Authoring Tool Providers: e.g., Adobe and Microsoft ●  CMS Platforms: e.g., Wordpress and Drupal ●  Distributors: e.g., Ingram
