Aware has a native custom math editing tool that allows test authors to create and edit mathematical text in line with questions and answer choices.

Simply click the **Add Math** button while editing an item, and the math editing tool will create a special text box with a floating math toolbar full of symbols for a variety of needs.

Test authors can use their keyboards and the special math toolbar to format their text in all test types and answer types.

Moreover, test authors can add alternate text to refine math language for students who use Text-to-Speech. The alternate text feature applies to drag and drop, inline choice, hot text, and match table grid questions.

Select the **Add Math **button next to the answer choice, and type out the alternate text students will hear under **Text-to-speech Override**. For example, the answer **-8=2x** could be read aloud as “negative eight equals two x” instead of “‘minus eight equals two x.”

Visit the interactive response question types for more information about using the equation editor.
