Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to bloomsburymathsengine.com and bloomsburymathengine.com known together as "Maths Engine". We want as many people as possible to be able to use Maths Engine. For example:

  • You can zoom in up to 150% using the browser zoom feature without text or user interface elements being cut off the screen.
  • Text-based content can be read via a screen-reader.
  • Mathematical equations have been written in MathJax which means these can also be read via a screenreader. A demonstration of using MathJax with a screenreader can be found in this video.
  • Many parts of Maths Engine can be navigated using just a keyboard.
