Braille Codes Pilot Project 1 December 1970 - 31 January 1972. Final Report.
Kederis, Cleves J.; Nolan, Carson Y.
A feasibility and planning study was conducted on braille code problems in five areas. The areas were textbook format, math and science, music notation, computer notation, and maps, charts, and diagrams. Problems in each of the areas were identified and defined by committees of experts. The problems were analysed and a determination was made of the methodology and amount of time required for their resolution. From the analyses it was concluded that a massive, short-term research assault on all of the problems was not feasible. However, a large number of problems were found which could be resolved within three to four years. The basic strategy for resolving these problems was group judgment or consensus. The number of persons needed for the effort was three to four. An application for a grant to study the problems was prepared. (Author)
