The Argonne Braille Project.
A project summary and 20 related papers are presented on the Argonne Braille Machine, a device which produces braille-equivalent information on magnetic tape rather than embossing dots on paper. The summary traces the machine's development while 10 papers cover such issues as user reactions, evaluation proposals, use and care of the machine, the braille reading process, and the system's advantages. An additional 10 papers focus on auxiliary equipment and computer translation. The final section includes information on the U.S. patent for the Argonne Braille Machine, letters and awards in recognition of its development, and sample related news clippings. (CL)
