g(Math) is updated to include graphing inequalites

You can now insert the graphs of inequalities into your Doc with g(Math)! Just enter the inequalities, separating each one with a comma, and click Preview to see your graph. Click on Insert to insert it at the position of your cursor in the Doc. By default, if you have more than 1 inequality, it will add the inequality to the legend. You can turn this option off by unchecking the option box at the bottom of the sidebar.

g(Math) Speech to Math!!!

g(Math) can now do Speech to Math input!! I am more excited about this update than any other features releases of g(Math)! It is still not ideal, but helps lower the bar for digital math creation. Using the keywords outlined here you can speak to g(Math) to create expressions.

1. Click on the mic icon. (The first time you do this it will ask you to allow the mic). Start talking!!
2. g(Math) will translate what you are saying using the math keywords and fill the LaTeX box with the math interpretation, this will automatically update the LaTeX Preview image. 
3. Click the Insert button to insert the image at your cursor in the Doc.

Below is an example where I spoke: "y equals fraction one half over two stop x plus 15":

Another aspect I updated was when you edit the LaTeX box and click on a prebuilt expression, it will enter it where your cursor is in the LaTeX box. It used to only add it at the end, now it will edit where you want!!

I am continuing to update the phrases for the prebuilt expressions, so if you have one you would like me to add let me know. If you would like to help translate to languages other than US English, please contact me as well!

g(Math) updated with better image quality for expressions and gridlines on graphs.

I am excited to release 2 of the top requested features on g(Math), better image quality on expressions and grid lines on graphs. Now that my job search is complete I hope to release a lot more improvements over the next few months. I am super excited about a couple of things in the pipeline and can't wait for them to be ready for primetime!

The top feature request/complaint about g(Math) was the poor image quality upon scaling. Thanks to +James Petersen's tip, you can now indicate the size of the image you want which increases quality. A ninja tip would be to have a bigger size than needed and shrink the image in the Doc to get a better quality image.

Grid lines used to be a feature on the original gGraph and now they are back! I made them a default option that will put gridlines on the specified xstep and ystep. You can uncheck the option at the bottom to return back to no gridlines.
