Blind or partially sighted people can read in several different ways and it all depends on personal preference. Some use Braille, other use a computer, screen reading software or audio books.
Braille is a system of raised dots that can be read with your fingers. Good Braille readers, like good print readers, can read much faster than they can talk.
Blind and partially sighted people use Braille to take notes at school and university, write letters, read music, record phone numbers and recipes, and to do the other things you might do using print. The RNIB has the UK’s largest collection of Braille and recorded books and magazines that you can borrow free of charge.
