"Nemeth: Educator and Inventor of the Braille Code for Mathematics and Science"
by Abraham Nemeth
October 27, 10 a.m.-noon
Foster Auditorium, 101 Pattee Library
Nemeth, blind from birth and determined to pursue his love of math and science despite the lack of Braille materials in these fields, created what is now know as the Nemeth Code for Mathematics and Science Notation. In 1952, his revolutionary idea became the standard mathematics code for the blind and visually impaired in the United States.
He also created MathSpeak, a system for orally communicating mathematical text, using HTML?XML tags..
