Innovative Solutions for Words with Emphasis: Alternative Methods of Braille Transcription
Kamei-Hannan, Cheryl
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v103 n10 p709-721 Oct 2009
The author of this study proposed two alternative methods for transcribing words with emphasis into braille and compared the use of the symbols for emphasis with the current braille code. The results showed that students were faster at locating words presented in one of the alternate formats, but that there was no difference in students' accuracy in identifying the indicators and naming the words with emphasis. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
