Letter-similarity effects in braille word recognition.
Baciero A, Gomez P, Duñabeitia JA, Perea M. Baciero A, et al. Q J Exp Psychol (Hove). 2023 Jul;76(7):1632-1640. doi: 10.1177/17470218221142145. Epub 2022 Dec 22. Q J Exp Psychol (Hove). 2023. PMID: 36382890 Free PMC article.
Here, we examine whether letter-similarity effects occur in reading braille. The rationale is that braille is a writing system in which the sensory information is processed in qualitatively different ways than in visual reading: the form of the word's letters is hig …
