  Why Are We Looking At EquatIO? 

Speech to math equatio

  • All content needs to be accessible and STEM is included!
  • Creating accessible STEM can be time-consuming and involve tools that can be overwhelming or not user-friendly
    • If you’re already a MathML or LaTeX user, EquatIO has those options
  • EquatIO provides tools across platforms and devices, so you can use your own tech
  • CSUN STEM ‘content creators’ are responsible to ensure that their content is accessible
    • The same way we look at videos, documents, and other media
