# Math equations in RISE

What are your recommendations for creating accessible math equations in RISE content? We need these to be accessible to students using screenreaders. Can we input MathJax/ML etc into RISE? Or is the only option to add each equation as an image with alt text description or maybe create a Word document with these equations, both of which are very time consuming. Please advise as we'd like to continue building in RISE, but need to ensure that these are accessible for users.

Hi Jennifer,

I know a few other users have asked for math equation support, so we're tracking those requests to look at the potential of this as a feature to Rise!

I'll add your discussion to that list, and I hope that others in the community are able to share what they've accomplished so far to add math equations to the courses and support all their users.

Hi Ashley,

Any update on this feature of using MathJax/ML into RISE 360 as it is also required for us in our project development or any other way to insert formulas rather than using an image.

Hi Aprana,

We want to give you the best information we can about upcoming features so that you can plan ahead for your projects. While a math equation editor is on our Rise 360 roadmap, it's not one that would be ready by the end of this year.

Of course, we'll keep you updated if we get a better ETA for this feature.

Also hugely needed in the courses I set up

Has anyone tried to modify the scorm output of a rise course to add the following snipped provided by mathjax (https://www.mathjax.org/#gettingstarted) ?

I'm looking at the structure of the file but I have no idea where to paste this. I understand it's better to not modify these files but this seems like a solution that could work while Articulate is working on a proper solution.

Have there been any updates on when an equation editor might be ready? We can only think of a workaround using images, but obviously this doesn't comply with accessibility guidelines. UK universities will need an accessible solution by 23 September 2020: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/online-accessibility-regulations-campaign-supporter-pack/gds-accessibility-regulations-campaign-information-for-education

I'm sorry I don't have any updates for you, Rachel! We'll let you know if we get new information that would be helpful.
