# Quarto Toolchain

## 1 About

Quarto is an open source STEM publishing system. It origin is in the R statistics language. Quarto produces documents in multiple formats, include HTML and PDF. It is based on Markdown. Via MathJax it has good math support. It is a strong candidate for producing accessible outputs, particular for blind users. This is a Quarto website.

## 2 Goals

The present intention is to focus on provide some examples of accessible Latex help, and of cheat sheets for blind students taking a math module. In these specialist areas, feedback from users is really important to ensure accessibility and other user needs. This is particularly important at the early stages.

## 3 Guide

The first four pages are:

- The first page of an introduction to Latex math.
- Work in progress on special keys and the Keyboard.
- An exploratory page pre-calculus page on Fractions.
- An exploratory page on Venn diagrams.
- [NEW] An exploratory page on Set theory.
- [NEW: 2023-10-31] A college algebra Cheat sheet.
