STEMReader has a range of tools and features to help you understand equations and maths notation. In particular, STEMReader allows you to explore equations using audio, text transcription or a map view. You can even find out what unfamiliar symbols mean.
There are 3 different versions of STEMReader with different tools available. These are:
STEMReader Basic: this is the free version of STEMReader. You can still have equations read aloud, but not all the features within STEMReader are available.
STEMReader Premium (coming soon): you will be able to experience all the features of STEMReader.
STEMReader Exam (coming soon): this is a locked down version of STEMReader which removes features which would not be suitable to access during an assessment, test or exam. The exam mode is available if you have a valid license for STEMReader Premium.
