Studying mathematics and sciences in general remains a challenge for people with visual impairment. Students require to access, produce and communicate mathematical contents, and to collaborate with sighted peers and teachers. Current digital devices and software applications allow students with visual impairment to access literary contents to a great degree, but the access to mathematical contents remains a work in progress. In this presentation we will review the issues in the access, edition and communication of non visual mathematical contents, as well as the current advances in software applications to support them.
Silvia Fajardo holds a Bs in Computer Systems Engineering by the Technological Institute of Colima, Mexico (1992-1997), a Masters degree in Information Technology by the Monash University, Australia (2002-2003), and a PhD in Computer Science by the University Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis (2010-2014). She is a full professor at the Faculty of Telematics of the University of Colima. Her research interests are educational technology, HCI and multimodal interfaces. She is currently working on the non visual access to mathematics.
