Braille Reading Rates as a Function of Reading Tasks.
Knowlton, M.; Wetzel, R.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n3 p227-36 May-Jun 1996
This study of the cognitive processes of braille reading compared the reading of 23 adult braille readers in 4 different reading conditions: oral reading, silent reading, studying, and scanning. The findings support the idea that braille reading is process driven and that reading rates vary, depending on the purpose of the reading task. (Author)
