KeyMath: Real time math braille to print translation
In the past students would typically manually braille their math assignments using a braille writer. This is an effective and necessary method for younger students to learn and gain an understanding of spacial mathematics. But as progress is made in the classroom students have asked for a way for them to create math content using their BrailleNote. Today KeyMath makes this a reality.
KeyMath is an app which integrates with KeyWord, the Touch’s powerful word processor.
• Type literary content in KeyWord, and when you write math content, simply activate the KeyMath app with backspace and M.
• Type your math equation using your preferred math braille code (Nemeth or UEB), and as you complete the equation, it will be displayed visually for sighted parents, teachers or colleagues immediately on the BrailleNote Touch’s screen.
• At this point the math braille and visual content can now be pasted in your KeyWord math document and printed or emailed to the classroom teacher in seconds.
If you forget how to write a math symbol, KeyMath comes equipped with HumanWare’s symbol selector. Simply search the categories for your symbol, KeyMath shows you how to write it in braille, and even press enter on it to insert it in the equation.
KeyMath ensures students can independently complete and turn in assignments to their classroom teachers but also serves as a tool to assist in learning the math braille codes.
