MathType is a suite of products to edit math equations and chemistry formulas in different technological set-ups. Which of the MathType products you choose will depend on your use cases, such as editing an equation in Microsoft Word in your desktop or a Google document.
You may be writing lab notes or lesson plans that no one will see but you. You may be writing textbooks or technical manuals that will be read by thousands. Either way, MathType is the only tool you'll need for great-looking math content any time, anywhere.
Compatibility with software and standards
Whether it's your favorite plotting software, computer algebra system, or word processor you'd like MathType to work with, chances are good MathType will work with it -- and others -- very nicely.
No one intentionally sets out to waste time, but why settle for "good enough"? MathType makes it easy to get done what you need to be done, and move on to other work
MathType comes "out of the box" ready to go, and its default state is fine for many users. Even so, many other users prefer to "make MathType their own" with various customizations -- and why not? MathType makes it easy to do so.
If you're a third grade or KS1 teacher, MathType has you covered. If you're a PhD candidate, we've got what you need. If you're a professional engineer, you'll find the gamut of engineering mathematics in MathType. It's all there.
MathType directly integrates with Word and Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT) to create documents with mathematical braille. Create talking books and documents that can be read aloud with accessible technology. If you need an expression read a certain way, you can (on Windows) enter Custom Speech Text that the screen reader will use instead of the normal text.
If you prefer LaTeX, you can type LaTeX directly into MathType or Word and convert to a built-up equation with a click or a keypress. Use MathType as a LaTeX front-end for LaTeX documents or web pages rendered with MathJax.
Export the formulas to EPS to get the best possible quality integrated into third party software like Adobe InDesign and Illustrator. For less demanding scenarios like publishing into the Web and social media, the faster GIF format is a perfect choice. You can also export to the WMF format in Windows and PDF in Mac.
