Factors Related to Braille Reading Acquisition Among Aging Braille Learners

SIG Access logo

Natalie Martiniello, Université de Montréal, describes her research proposal, the goal of which is "to answer fundamental questions about aging on braille reading performance through both traditional and technological methods and to explore whether use of refreshable braille technologies within training interventions would help to better meet the unique needs of a quickly aging population."

It is anticipated that this research will provide much-needed evidence upon which decisions about the use of braille display technologies in braille instruction for adult learners can be based.
