The Impact of Braille Reading Skills on Employment, Income, Education, and Reading Habits.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n3 p219-26 May-Jun 1996
This study compared outcomes for 74 congenitally legally blind adults who learned to read braille or print as their original reading medium. Those who learned to read using braille had higher employment rates and educational levels, were more financially self-sufficient, and spent more time reading than did those who learned to read using print.
