[The necessary reform of Chinese Braille writing].

[Article in German]


Written Chinese, due to its specific characteristics, poses extraordinary difficulties for its translation into Braille. To this day, this constitutes a serious handicap for Chinese-speaking blind people in education and employment. Reforming Chinese Braille, therefore, is an absolute necessity. Regrettably, only little research has so far been undertaken regarding the various possibilities available. A controversial debate on the alternatives for reform is sure to take place in the years ahead. Concrete research, if on a very small scale, has now at least been started in Marburg, with initial results expected by late 1991.
