Practice Report — JVIB Extract

Since Practice Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: People who are visually impaired (that is, those who are blind or have low vision) use a wide variety of sensory information to understand the world around them. Hearing is a particularly useful sense because of its range. Many visually impaired people use some form of echolocation to monitor the space around them (for example, the sound of a cane tip reflected off a wall is a common way to keep a parallel path without trailing or shore lining).
