You may type numbers into the equation editor using the standard Nemeth braille lower-cell numbers.
The equation editor will automatically supply the numeric indicator for you. Whether you type it or not, the equation editor should still produce the proper Nemeth braille output.
A comma separator may be entered as part of a number using dot 6.
A decimal point may be entered as part of a number using dots 46.
A decimal number may be entered with a leading zero, or without it. Again, whether or not you type the numeric indicator, the equation editor should produce the proper Nemeth braille output.
Type the following numbers into the equation editor below and verify that the equation editor produces the proper Nemeth braille output in each case. Also verify that a sighted friend can read each number you have typed as it is displayed on the screen. Feel free to try your own examples.
