Etudes supports the creation of mathematical notations via a MathML plugin (Wiris Editor). 

Wiris is a visual editor that allows inserting mathematical formulas easily into content. It is available to instructors and students in all areas of Etudes where you can compose with the editor. 

You can use a large collection of icons nicely organized in thematic tabs in order to create formulas and insert them into your content.

To launch the MathML editor, click on square root icon of the editor’s toolbar.

The editor creates a full description of the formula on-the-fly for you and it is included under an ‘alt’ tag. This is then read by screen readers for blind learners.

The editor runs on any browser, including the ones in tablet PCs, as is based on HTML4 and JavaScript technology. Plus it is of course 100% compliant with HTML5.  

The user guide for the MathML editor can be found under the “?” mark when you open the editor.
