team has started a multi-year project to make its PDF output more
accessible.

Tomorrow (Thursday) the TeX Hour will focus on relations between these and
similar projects. The LaTeX project depends on research into how to best
enable math accessibility in PDF. The previously mentioned work is a good
starting point for this research. And using HTML as the platform will allow
