How does one who has been blind since birth see the world?

How does one who has been blind since birth see the world? Does he/she "see" by thinking in shapes? If so, are these images in a two-color gradient or are they comprised of several colors? Or is it something completely different or even something beyond words?

My boyfriend has been blind practically since birth, and I know he said he mostly thinks about things in terms of what they feel like. Like for example: An Apple. It's round, with a little stem at the top. Hope this helps

If someone has been born without sight, then they would be unable to see the world. They have to make sense of the world using their other senses. They can learn where things are located by using landmarks, or by learning their relative position to other objects.

If not, they can be taught techniques which teach them how to operate in the world, such as search pattern, cane skills and sensory training.


Re:How does one who has been blind since birth see the world?



I wanted to give this topic another chance, because it's a question that I'd love to know. My grandmother was an incredible woman despite being born without sight. I hope that my ignorance hasn't offended anyone; I ask because I've always wanted to know how she saw the world, If there's anyone out there that can answer my question, ANY response would be greatly appreciated.
