Effects of Orientation on Braille Reading by People Who Are Visually Impaired: The Role of Context.
Ungar, Simon; Blades, Mark; Spencer, Christopher
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v92 n7 p454-63 Jul 1998
This study of 12 individuals with blindness or low vision extended earlier studies by Morton Heller concerning speed and accuracy of reading noncanonical (tilted) braille text. Results were similar for Heller's original character set (B-J), but the effect of orientation was reduced with other letters and whole words, especially for experienced braille readers. (DB)
