Braille is an arrangement of raised dots on a surface that form numbers, letters, and words. Blind persons feel the dots with their fingertips to recognize the patterns. Th…e technique is similar to holding a pair of dice in your hand and feeling the dents that tell you what number is on each face. You can feel how many dents there are, which tells you what number it is. Braille is the same except the letters are raised bumps. Each set of raised bumps is a different letter. Just like the dice. People that read Braille learn what each letter feels like. Both hands are used in reading Braille, but mainly the index fingers.
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 fair pro…ject 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 :]
Children used it at the same time for a test run after the council that allowed it to go forward tryed it as well. So not one specific person used it first. The council people… did.
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!
When you are blind, you obviously can't see the regular print on books, signs, or anything for that matter. It's just like a foreign language. They need to learn it so that th…ey can read what normal sighted people read.
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.
