Assistive Software: Digital Maths Tool

EquatIO - Digital Maths

EquatIO is an equation editor now available in the Library and across campus to staff and students. You can use it to insert maths and chemistry expressions into Microsoft Word and other applications. Maths and chemistry formulas can be typed, handwritten (via mouse/touchpad), spoken or converted from a photo. 

EquatIO also works with TextHelp Read&Write so equations can be read aloud in the correct order. This feature is only available on the Assistive Technology PCs in as these are installed with Read&Write.

When opening EquatIO from Windows or your CloudPaging account, it should sign you in automatically with your student email account. If it asks you to login, select Microsoft and log in with your DMU email and password. If the toolbar shows that you are running a trial version, click Log Out, and then log back in again.

This is a new addition to our AT software provision. If there are any issues with the application, please log a helpdesk call with ITMS - click here to see their contact details.
