Description of How Much Space Does Grade 2 Braille Really Save?



Abstract: This article reports on a study of a unique method for calculating the space-saving capacity of all Grade 2 braille contractions and the literary braille code as a whole. The study found that, contrary to the widespread belief that contracted braille saves 31 percent over print, the actual text reduction is about 20 percent.
