Thank you very much Tung September 27, 2017 at 10:17 am #29663 kdejuteModerator Tung, If in Nemeth Code you have a long dash followed by a variable, then a space should follow the long dash. (See §42 of the Nemeth Code.) So, for y = __x + __ the appropriate transcription would be ⠽⠀⠨⠅⠀⠤⠤⠤⠤⠀⠭⠬⠀⠤⠤⠤⠤ Thank you for you question. Sincerely, Kyle September 27, 2017 at 4:51 pm #29665 TungParticipant Thank you very much.
