Access to mathematical expressions have always been a particular problem for blind and partially sighted people, and more widely people with print disability including people with dyscalculi, dyslexia, dyspraxia and other perception, processing or motor disorders. It is the aim of the special issue to find ways how the potential of ICT, Assistive Technologies and accessibility (semantics) enhanced content development could lead to advancements in education and career of those with a print disability.
This special issue intends to bring together experts from around the world to present and discuss the state of the art, research and development activities, and the future perspectives in access to mathematics for the pint disabled.
Anticipated themes include, but are not limited to:
•    Access to mathematical and other scientific material (e.g. statistics, chemistry, biology) in different formats (e.g. adapted visual, audio, Braille, captioning) and using Assistive Technologies
•    Understanding and learning mathematics and science based on flexible and adaptable multimedia representations and Assistive Technologies
•    Doing mathematics employing multi-modal interaction possibilities (e.g. speech input, touch, gestures, tangible interfaces) and Assistive Technologies
•    Inclusive education and job integration in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) rich domains.
We particularly welcome submissions that focus on inclusive processes and didactics.
