Text design and the setting of Braille (with a footnote on Moon)
This paper suggests how the findings of recent research on text design can be applied to the setting of braille. I describe how both the typographic layout and the use of 'access structures' can help readers to find their way around text, and I discuss the results of an experiment that investigated the effects of inserting headings into braille text. Finally I add some comments from a design point of view on Moon - a different way of presenting text to the blind.
