Focus Group Research on the Implications of Adopting the Unified English Braille Code
Wetzel, Robin; Knowlton, Marie
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v100 n4 p203-211 Apr 2006
Five focus groups explored concerns about adopting the Unified English Braille Code. The consensus was that while the proposed changes to the literary braille code would be minor, those to the mathematics braille code would be much more extensive. The participants emphasized that "any code that reduces the number of individuals who can access braille has failed to meet the goal of reading and should not be adopted, regardless of how elegant the code may be."
