Create accessible math using Math Tools in OrbitNote.
Math Tools in OrbitNote allows users to create and input math within PDFs, powered by Equatio.
Accessible math in PDFs
Math Tools is a game-changing addition to OrbitNote. It allows educators and learners to interact with math while using OrbitNote. Cut down on time switching between multiple programs to edit and read math aloud by using the Math Tools feature right inside OrbitNote.
Math Tools, powered by Equatio, helps to make math in inaccessible PDFs more accessible and interactive.
Math Tools' screenshot reader is a great feature to make math more accessible.
Simply drag a box around the math or STEM problem in your PDF and the Screenshot reader will read math aloud for you and your students. This is a particularly good tool for those students who struggle reading math problems on a page or screen.
Once the screenshot reader has read the problem aloud, students can then copy that math straight into Equatio’s equation editor box and solve the problem, using any of Equatio’s input methods, type, handwrite or speak. Once the problem has been solved a simple click on the “insert math” will place the student’s work right back into the PDF.
What educators say
I love how OrbitNote allows all learners to easily manipulate PDF documents and gives them access to the familiar tools that allow them to be independent and successful.
