[BlindKid] Math Homework on the PC

Hi Linda
All of our blind students do all their math work in word-- we do have a few
who have difficulties with math concepts so will outputs math work as
needed so we gauge toward cognitive level..

We have been teachingthis way for around 18 years. They read from a Nemeth
code math book so the braille is under their fingers and then they output
it in word using a braille display. Then of course email it to their
teachers just like their peers.
You can do UEB math or Nemeth code math depending on what they have learned
on a good braille display.  The majority of people are still using Nemeth
code. Most of our students use the focus 40.
Hope this helps
