Teachers' voices: Comments on Braille and literacy from the field

This article presents results from a survey about Braille literacy sent to a nationwide sample of teachers of students who are blind or visually impaired. Responses indicate that the majority of sampled teachers view Braille as an important learning medium and strongly support Braille instruction. At the same time, these teachers believe that technology has an important role and that the decision between print and Braille instruction should be made on an individual student basis.
