        Support for MathML in Edge would be a great step in improving math accessibility for the blind. I've seen how Microsoft has put a huge effort into accessibility in the past few years, this is necessary to continue that effort.

        Dear Microsoft:
        I continue to be impressed with your dedication to ensuring accessibility over the past couple of years. As a blind computer scientist, I can ensure you that access to math is one reason so many people who are blind drop out of college. It is not easy to pass math classes as a sighted person, and it is at least an order of magnitude harder for a blind person, especially in upper division math. Since I was doing my math classes both before, and after mathml started becoming ubiquitous in the mainstream, I can't even explain how much easier it was to find resources. Since a large chunk of the web uses mathjax to render math, and mathjax offers me access to mathml, I was able to access much more math on the web in an accessible way. The entirety of wikipedia uses mathml for accessibility, as an example. Once Edge can expose mathml to assistive technologies, Microsoft will open many many doors for education.
        Cheers,
        Derek

        Can you imagine trying to do math blind? MathML at least makes this more feasible, and is a very important feature to a lot of people. Please implement MathML into Microsoft Edge.

        Please make sure that make sure Edge can handle math content in e-pubs. It is of the utmost importance for accessibility.

        Please make Microsoft Edge more accessible: allow for screen readers to easily manipulate and have access to built in Mathmatical information.

        MathML is a tremendous technology for communicating complex information and makes it possible for disabled users to learn independently.

        May I ask where all these people commenting are coming from so suddenly?

        My visually impaired students struggle with the accessibility of math. Please make it accessible.

        As a disabilities specialist I can't stress enough how important this would be to blind students. This would open doors to so many more opportunities for our blind population.

        Blind students really needs this, as do blind professionals. Please devote resources to this area of accessibility.
