The University of Bath hosted a workshop on Accessible Learning

Resources in mathematics on 7th January 2013. This workshop aimed to

bring together practitioners and researchers with an interest in the

technical challenges of producing accessible learning resources for

mathematical subjects. Delegates were warned that talks would be of a

technical nature, assuming knowledge of at least (but not

limited to) LaTeX, MathML and the typical authoring and content

production practices of the mathematics community.

Volker Sorge of the University of Birmingham spoke on his

project to turn electronically prepared PDF documents containing

mathematics into accessible documents. Jonathan Fine of the Open

University discussed the methods the OU has been

exploring. Emma Cliffe of University of Bath disseminated some of

the findings of a HESTEM funded project aimed at exploring methods

currently available to individual lecturers.
