While at the National Federation of the Blind of 
Maryland Convention on October 22-24, 2010, we 
invite you to participate in a fun and easy study 
to measure Braille reading styles.  The research 
is being conducted by Towson University and 
National Public Radio with the consultation of 
the NFB Jernigan Institute.  All that is required 
is for you to read six short NPR stories on a 
refreshable Braille display and answer questions 
about the stories.  The Refreshable Braille 
Display will be provided at the session.   Even 
if you don't often read with a Braille display, 
you can participate – we will provide a short 
training session in the beginning if you need 
it.  The entire study should take around an hour, 
depending on your reading speed, and you will 
receive $40 for your time.  The session will take 
place at the Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis, 
Maryland and we will schedule your participation 
at a time that is convenient for you.  We hope 
you can find time in your busy day to help us with this important research!

For more information or to schedule a time, 
please contact Mike Eskenazi at
