Thanks for the feedback!
Because they are not able to see printed text and need a way to be able to read and write.
it changed their lives in a huge way!!! they were finally able to read, after hearing their entire life that they were never going to be able to!!! im doing a history fa…ir project on this and it ending up being very interesting.
sufficiently far apart to exceed the two-point threshold
louis braille taught blind people how to use braille by gathering some blind people and asking them what they felt on the dots and then told them what that letter, number or w…ord was.
When a person goes blind there other sences become hightened, as you may have heard. But many people don't realized the sort of spidy sence that blind people posses. Question,… Have you ever seen a blind person just undressing on a crowded subway platform. Answer No. It's because they develope jesus like powers that allow them to be all knowing at all times. So the way a blind person knows there is brail around them is they just harness there powers or they could just ask.
Blind people can not see so there other senses are heightened. They used to have GIANT books with the letters popping out and they had very few and they were extremely heavy. …So they made up this system of raised dots so they could read easier and and it wasn't so bulky.... YEAH THE RAISED DOTS ARE SO THEY CAN READ IT.... felt like giving you some back history.
Haha I don't know how blind people learned braille but if I did I wouldn't be writing this right now but thanks for trying :]
People put there hands against the fine tiny dots.You have to learn it but if your blind it can help you in your everyday life!
Braille is a RAISED form of writing so it is easy to feel with the fingers.
They didn't. That is why braille is such a big thing. They could read all by themselves instead of waiting until someone else could read for them.
Most sources state that in the US, less than 10% of the legally blind people can read braille.
Braille is a system of raised dots arranged in a 2 x 3 grid to an internationally agreed pattern and spacing. A blind person 'reads' Braille by feeling for the raised dots wi…th their finger-tips and 'de-cyphering' them.
They don't communicate through the use of braille they use it as their form of reading they feel the words which in this case is a series of dots and bumps which symbolise… a different letter and when combined together can make words.
The Braille system was based on a method of communication originally developed by Charles Barbier in response to Napoleon's demand for a code that soldiers could use to commun…icate silently and without light at night called night writing. Barbier's system of sets of 12 embossed dots encoding 36 different sounds was too difficult for soldiers to perceive by touch, and was rejected by the military. In 1821 he visited the National Institute for the Blind in Paris, where he met Louis Braille. Braille identified the two major defects of the code: first, by representing only sounds, the code was unable to give the orthography of the words; second, the human finger could not encompass the whole symbol without moving, and so could not move rapidly from one symbol to another. His modification was to use a 6 dot cell - the Braille system - representing all the letters of the alphabet. Braille as we know it today was devised in 1825 by Braille.
because they are special
