Description of Identification of Characters with Shared Representations: Decoding Musical and Literary Braille



Abstract: This study investigated the degree to which code switching was operative in the performances of skilled and less skilled readers of musical and literary braille on two tasks that required the identification of characters shared by the two codes in the auditory and tactile modalities. In both modalities, skilled readers were significantly faster and more accurate than less skilled readers. The results suggest that the less skilled readers' inferior performances on tasks of code switching may have been due to inefficient verbal processing.
