People with sight impairments can access to a mathematical expression by using its LATEX source.

Abstract

People with sight impairments can access to a mathematical expression by using its LATEX source. However, this mechanisms have several drawbacks: (1) it assumes the knowledge of the LATEX, (2) it is slow, since LATEX is verbose and (3) it is error-prone since LATEX is a typographical language. In this paper we study the design of a natural language generation system for producing a mathematical sentence, i.e. a natural language sentence expressing the semantics of a mathematical expression. Moreover, we describe the main results of a first human based evaluation experiment of the system for Italian language.
