Impact of reading for blind and partially sighted adults


April to September 2012

LISU and The Reading Agency were commissioned by RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) to find out what reading for pleasure means to blind and partially sighted adults. The project included an evidence audit followed by interviews in person and on the telephone with blind and partially sighted adults. In addition, an online survey was used to gather additional evidence. The questions explored reading preferences, what reading means and the difference it makes to the life of adults living with sight loss. A set of six illustrative case studies were provided. The data gathered have been analysed and synthesised with the evidence audit in a report to RNIB which is now available to download here as an accessible PDF or RTF version.
