A test is described which has been used to determine how well a partially sighted subject can read and write with the help of the closed circuit TV system, RANDSIGHT I. The procedure is designed to build up the subject's confidence in himself by emphasizing how much he can see and how much he can accomplish with his residual vision. Over 120 subjects have been tested and the results are given for 81 of them. 35 pp. Ref.
