They'll want to install MathPlayer (free) into Internet Explorer.  The last time I checked it didn't work with I.E. 10 so I had to downgrade to I.E. 9.

If I give my student a word doc with math type coded problems, will the student be able to read it? We are doing everything in hard copy at the moment.

"The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight.  The
real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of education that
exists.  If a blind person has the proper training and
opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical
nuisance."Kenneth Jernigan

I find it interesting that (apparently .. if I'm reading the replies correctly) that two different people use different methods to represent the same information.  Not that someone couldn't do that, but it would seem logical to have one accepted and approved set of Braille characters to represent a certain piece of information.  Then, if everyone saved to that syntax, you could have a universal standard program that could then translate and print it out for the benefit of a sighted teacher who didn't understand the Braille code.


I'm all about standards ... it just makes life easier when you want to leverage information.

I don't use superscripts at all. They are confusing for me to read, and I show my work and math for my benefit as well as the teachers. I use parentheses if there are problems with clarification.
