Description of How Blind Readers Perceive and Gather Information Written in Braille



Abstract: This study examined how readers who are blind perceive and retrieve written information and investigated the strategies they used to compensate for their limitations. It found that expert braille readers are not limited to the isolated identification of individual braille characters that are later integrated, but can integrate greater quantities of written information, which indicates that braille reading is a more dynamic and integrated process than has previously been thought.
