Goes out with an escort, recognizes the path using landmarks like speed breakers and familiar sounds. Doesn’t use the cane. Records relevant information when someone reads out technical papers. Finds audio to be greater advantage then Braille. Is very organized. Remembers telephone numbers by way of memory chunking Recognizes people by height from which the voice emanates, tone and mannerisms of the other person Prof. Uday Boumik IIT Bombay
