The TalkMaths project provides functionality for creating mathematical equations hands-free, using speech recognition. This is useful for anyone who prefers to speak rather than use keyboard and mouse. TalkMaths can be seen as an enhancement of existing assistive technology or simply as a tool to boost productivity.

Students can create mathematical e-content without the need to learn LaTeX. Academics can enhance their productivity by dictating lecture notes and research papers.
