04/17/2024, Equatio & Mathspace is out of this world!

Date: 04/17/2024 Time: 3:30-4:30 Location: internet Type: Webinar

Description

Digital math can be alien to your learners.  We’ll discover a whole new world for your learners to use Equatio’s Mathspace to work freely in a digital space with equations, shapes, and freehand drawings. We will show you how Equatio uses math optical character recognition (OCR), handwriting and speech input to insert math expressions into any document. The EquatIO screenshot reader lets you turn any inaccessible equation on the web into accessible, editable math and automatically reads it aloud.
