How Blind Readers Perceive and Gather Information Written in Braille.
Simon, C.; Huertas, J. A.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n5 p322-30 May 1998
Twenty-six expert adult readers, 13 of whom were blind, were compared for how they perceived and retrieved written information. The study found that braille readers were not limited to the isolated identification of individual braille characters as previously thought, but could integrate greater quantities of written information. Implications for the education of blind students are drawn. (DB)
