San­dro Co­ri­asco sub­mit­ted the axessibil­ity pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.0 Li­cense type: cc-by-nc-4 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ac­cess to for­mu­las in PDF files by by as­sis­tive tech­nolo­gies An­nounce­ment text:
We pro­pose the axessibil­ity pack­age. PDF doc­u­ments con­tain­ing for­mu­lae gen­er­ated by LaTeX are usu­ally not ac­ces­si­ble by as­sis­tive tech­nolo­gies for vi­su­ally im­paired peo­ple (i.e., by screen read­ers and braille dis­plays). The axessibil­ity pack­age man­ages this is­sue, al­low­ing to cre­ate a PDF doc­u­ment where the for­mu­lae are read by these as­sis­tive tech­nolo­gies, since it au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­ates hid­den com­ments in the PDF doc­u­ment (by means of the /Ac­tu­alText at­tribute) in cor­re­spon­dence to each for­mula.
The pack­age's Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/axessibil­ity The pack­age's files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/axessibil­ity
