Description of Braille Communication Skills: What Teachers Teach and Visually Impaired Adults Use



Abstract: The study reported here investigated which braille-related communication skills 233 teachers of students with visual impairments taught and 531 adults who are visually impaired used. It found that the teachers taught the use of braillewriters, computers, audiocassette recorders, and typewriters but rarely taught the use of slates and styli and sighted readers' services. The visually impaired adults used a variety of communication modes, primarily braillewriters, slates and styli, sighted readers' services, and sighted writers' services.
