Campbell, J. S.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v91 n2 p175-81 Mar-Apr 1997
This study of six adults with blindness tested a code that facilitates the interpretation of tactile outline graphics by reducing potential ambiguities in figure-ground, slope, and curvature. Results found all subjects learned the code in less than two hours and successfully matched coded graphics to targeted objects. (Author/CR)
