We describe the development of a speech-driven user interface system, TalkMaths, which enables the dictation of mathematical expressions into electronic documents without the user needing extensive knowledge of any specialized markup language. This system should be of value to many students and teachers, particularly those with disabilities - for whom typing mathematical text is currently very difficult.
