EquatIO is a math accessibility solution for those who prefer to listen to math in any document or web page, or to create math content with voice or handwriting.

EquatIO allows users to take a screenshot of the inaccessible equation to convert it to accessible math that will automatically be read aloud. 

EquatIO can be used to dictate equations and formulas aloud. It understands what is said and turns the spoken input to written expressions. EquatIO can also be used to write math freehand on the device and to turn that into digital math.
