In collaboration with NFB, Towson University is conducting research 
that compares Braille and sighted reading.  We are looking for 
experienced male Braille readers who are employed or who are in 
college and use Braille on a daily basis.  During the study you will 
read some stories and complete a few short literacy tests.  The study 
will take approximately an hour and you will be compensated $25 for 
your time.  You can also choose to donate this money back to the 
NFB.  Please contact
