Effects of Microcomputer and Tactile Aid Simulations on the Spatial Ability of Blind Individuals.
Zimmerman, G. J.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v84 n10 p541-47 Dec 1990
Four blind adults explored the spatial layout of landmarks in a large-scale space utilizing a microcomputer simulation of the environment and a tactile graphic aid of a similar environment. Although subjects learned the landmarks' locations faster using the tactile graphic aid, the accuracy of their spatial knowledge was equal with both conditions. (Author/JDD)
