This is version 2.0 of axessibility, a package which allows LaTeX to create 
pdf files with mathematical formulae accessible by assistive technologies 
for visually impaired people.

axessibility – Access to formulas in PDF files by assistive technologies

PDF documents containing formulas generated by 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 formulas 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.
