Description of Visual Reading Versus Auditory Reading by Sighted Persons and Persons with Low Vision

A study of two forms of the Auditory Reading Test with 53 elderly participants with normal or low vision and normal or impaired hearing found that mild-to- moderate hearing loss did not reduce the participants’ auditory reading rate as much as was expected. It also found that the participants with low vision read at least as quickly using computer and natural speech as the sighted participants did when reading visually.
