Making a Complex Mathematical Authoring Tool Accessible

Content Authoring

Business Need

The client had acquired a math authoring tool 30 years ago. This tool evolved over time and leveraged modern HTML5 based front-end along canvas for drawing. The core components used  ReactJS for components and interactions.

It incorporated new features like enabling users to perform transformations (translations, rotations, reflections, dilations) of geometric figures drawn or constructed on screen. Instructors primarily used this tool to author problems involving complex mathematical equations, charts and geometry. Though the tool offered to build rich problems, at the same time, the exported outcomes were not accessible.

Key Outcomes

  • Feasibility analysis for accessibility implementation both in tool and outcomes.
  • Design thinking for an accessible product, solution considerations, and implementation approach
  • Roadmap for implementation along with indicative pricing

Our Approach

  • A consulting team of Product Consultants was set up
  • Teams conducted user interviews along with product analysis to arrive at the final analysis and recommendations
  • Prototypes were built at every stage to align with customer expectations and instill confidence in them
  • A seamless handover was planned to support the implementation team absorbing the recommendations before they implemented the same in the final tool
