Sandro Coriasco submitted the axessibility package. Version number: 1.0 License type: cc-by-nc-4 Summary description: Access to formulas in PDF files by by assistive technologies Announcement text:
We propose the axessibility package. PDF documents containing formulae generated by LaTeX are usually not accessible by assistive technologies for visually impaired people (i.e., by screen readers and braille displays). The axessibility package manages this issue, allowing to create a PDF document where the formulae are read by these assistive technologies, since it automatically generates hidden comments in the PDF document (by means of the /ActualText attribute) in correspondence to each formula.
The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/axessibility The package's files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/axessibility
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Erik Braun
