Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v95 n3 p172-75 Mar 2001
Six teenagers with visual impairments were given a guided tour of an historic site in Belgium and then questioned concerning their spatial representation of the site and remembered information. Analysis revealed that orally presented information did not compensate for visual cues. Findings led to development of a scale model of the site adapted for the haptic modality and an embossed map of the tour. (Contains two references.) (DB)
