Using MathPlayer with MathJax in D2L

NOTE:

As of August 2016, this option is not working in D2L. 

The vendor for MathPlayer has been notified, and is working to determine what has changed.  Please check back regularly for updates.
An alternate option until this is resolved for reading equations aloud is to use NVDA.

When it detects MathPlayer, it hands over rendering to MathPlayer because MathPlayer is much faster and MathPlayer is accessible. This is typically done automatically. However, some configurations of MathJax disable this automatic handover. If this happens, you can force MathJax to use MathML in your D2L page.

 To do so:

  1. Right click on the equation
  2. Choose: MathSettings: MathRender: MathML

If you wish to get MathPlayer's contextual menu, you can do so by

  1. Right click on the equation
  2. Choose: MathSettings:MathPlayer:Mouse and Menu Events 

Once you switch to MathPlayer's contextual menu, you can switch back to MathJax's menu by performing a similar procedure:

  1. Alt+left-click on the equation
  2. Choose: MathSettings:MathPlayer:Mouse and Menu Events
