MathType has three important accessibility capabilities. First of all, MathType can be used as an add-on to Microsoft Word to enable students with hand writing or mobility issues to create math equations with a computer, either via the keyboard, mouse, or with a variety of adaptive mouse tools. Secondly, MathType can be used to create accessible math content via MathType's MathPage function. The resulting web document can then be read with any MathML-enabled screen reader or assistive technology application.

GeoGebra is a dynamic mathematics software for schools that joins geometry, algebra, spreadsheets, graphing, statistics and calculus. Users can do constructions with points, vectors, segments, lines, conic sections as well as functions and change them dynamically afterwards. Additionally, math equations and coordinates can be entered directly. GeoGebra allows students to see the relationships between these different branches of mathematics.GeoGebra is available both online and offline versions.
