STUDENTS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS: BRAILLE READING RATE
Keywords:Students with visual impairment, Reading, Braille reading rate, Braille literacy
A comparison reading performance was done between 8 students who are using Braille and 14 students who are using enlarged print to read. Reading performance was determined using reading rate (words per minute, wpm). Reading rate results showed no significant difference (p>0.05) between those using the Braille (16.62±11.61 wpm) and those using the enlarged print (27.21±24.89 wpm). This study has shown that Braille reader students read at lower reading rate compared to print reader students with visual impairment.
