Humanware just had a webinar today regarding math on a BrailleNote Touch.
If I am understanding your question along with what they presented, I would
think the answer is that the student would best write their answers in a
new Keyword docx, not in the brf. It would help skip the step of you having
to translate the brf file. You can access the archived webinar at their
website. I'm not a fan of math on notetakers, but can see its relevance in
these times.
