[Athen] Scientific Notebook vs Mathtype

Hi Marshall,

MathType 7 has an add-in to Word called ChemType, which appears to make
writing chemical equations easier.

MathType itself is somewhat accessible, in that there are many built-in
keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl-H and Ctrl-L for superscripts and

The user can also define his own shortcuts.

MathType will easily convert math expressions to MathML.

I am looking forward to using it to convert chemical equations into MathML,
for use in some STEM lessons I am currently writing.

I have not used Scientific Notebook.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [Athen] Scientific Notebook vs Mathtype

Hello all,

We were looking to get the new scientific notebook, version 6, but found out
it is not compatible with duxbury. We currently have mathtype, but was
looking at alternatives, especially when using to convert to braille. We
haven't needed braille in a while, but are getting prepared in case. What
are your thoughts between the two, mathtype and scientific notebook? I find
mathtype easy to use, but not sure if it is good for science equations or

Thank you,
