Dear Katrina,

As a veteran BrailleNote user, I know for a fact that .brf files can be edited in the latest version of the software on BrailleNote Touch Plus models (the latest generation of hardware). This was also the case on many past BrailleNotes, with the exception of the very first releases of the BrailleNote Touch software in 2016. That way the student will be able to delete the answer blanks that appear in the file and replace them with the work/answer they intend. Hopefully that helps.

Thank you,
