A study investigated the types of gestures used, the frequency of the gestures, and the total time engaged in gestural communication by 11 visually impaired-sighted dyads; 12 sighted dyads; and 8 visually impaired dyads. Adults with visual impairments used more adapters and used gestures, emblems, and illustrators less often. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
