Research Report: Selected Findings from the First International Evaluation of the Proposed Unified English Braille Code
Since Research Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the full text.
Braille literacy skills are essential for success in school and employment and for independence throughout life (Ryles, 1996, 2000; Schroeder, 1996). Because of the fundamental importance of well-developed literacy skills, the braille code by which persons who are blind or have low vision attain full literacy should be one that is easy and efficient to learn, use, and produce. A process has been under way for some time to study possible changes in the English braille code, which is the focus of this article.
