Welcome to the Nemeth Code Self-Study File Area.

The Nemeth Code Self-Study for the Braille Lite is designed to be used by blind individuals to learn to read and write the Nemeth Code for Braille mathematics, or to refresh skills using this code. This software causes all of the Nemeth Code symbols to be spoken correctly.

This page is designed to provide a simple means of reaching the self-study easily. It provides links to download the complete self-study as well as the documentation.
