Audio Player #ATIA20 Audio: Bookshare Balances The Equation With Accessible Math

Joe last caught up with the Bookshare team in Las Vegas with the announcement of the service hitting the one million book mark. As impressive as that feat is, Benetech Product Manager Nicholas Bowen provided Joe with an initial look at how Bookshare is working to make math easier to read. Listen in, or read below, how cloud services are being used to scale in order to allow the new "Math Detective" the ability to use OCR for a MathML injection into the appropriate area within a textbook. To learn more about this new tool, sign up for the newsletter at the official Bookshare site as new information will be released through that outlet.
