How to Add Texthelp "EquatIO" (Math Tool) Extension Chrome

Updated

What is EquatIO?

EquatIO is a math accessibility solution for those who prefer to listen to math in any document or web page or create math content with voice or handwriting.

EquatIO allows users to take a screenshot of the inaccessible equation to convert it to accessible math.  Users can paste the equation into a Word document or create LaTeX or MathML of the equation.

EquatIO can be used to dictate equations and formulas aloud. It understands what is said and turns the spoken input into written expressions. EquatIO can also be used to write math freehand on the device and to turn that into digital math.
