Notes

MathType is a non-web application that allows users to create equation images in several formats. When integrated with Microsoft Word, it also allows creating web content containing equation images from a Word document. In consequence, requirements labeled in the standards included in this report as "Software" or "Authoring tool" apply to MathType

You can find MathType support documentation at docs.wiris.com. Thus, requirements labeled as "Support Docs" also apply to MathType

In order to ease the reading of this report, each cell in the column "Conformance Level" and "Remarks and Explanations" is divided in three rows, corresponding to the three scopes of applicable requirements: "Software", "Authoring tool" and "Support Docs".

Requirements related to "Web", "Closed Functionality Software", "non-web document" or "Product Docs" don't apply because MathType is not a web application, it is not a closed functionality software, and all its documentation is web.

"Voluntary Product Accessibility Template" and "VPAT" are registered service marks of the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI).

Evaluation Methods Used: Visual inspection using assistive technologies. Testing is based on general product knowledge.

Table information for VPAT readers

For each of the standards, the criteria are listed by chapter in a table. The structures of the tables are: the first column contains the criteria being evaluated, the second column describes the level of conformance of the product regarding the criteria and the third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product.

  • When sections of criteria do not apply, or deemed by the customer as not applicable, the section is noted as such and the rest of that table may be removed for that section.

  • When multiple standards are being recorded in this document, the duplicative sections are noted and responded to only one time. The duplicate entry will note the cross reference to the data.

Applicable standards/guidelines

This report covers the degree of conformance for the following accessibility standard/guidelines:
