Amazing if it works!

"Hand a pen and a piece of paper to a member of the audience. Ask them to write a word, number or name on the piece of paper. As they are writing, you instantly know what they have written. Your back is turned. You never see the paper. There are no peeks, no gimmicks, no sleights. You do this purely with your own skill.
How is it possible?"

It's pencil reading tuition. I am not deaf, not have any deaf friends, so I am going out on a limb here. I think you need to be able to hear to do pencil reading.

What about the blind?

I saw a Belgium guy on Dutch TV- he is able to 'decipher' objects around him ( non trickery here)
He emits sounds, he then picks up the echos ( coming back to him) of the objects around him.

The interviewer had a globe on the table, the (echo man) picked up that it was indeed a ball.

Its amazing and apparently a technique all blind people can learn, according to him.

I saw the clicking blind man too on something here. Derren Brown maybe? He was AMAZING!

But to answer your question, I would have thought a blind person would find it much easier than a person with vision, as their ears will already be super-tuned.

No Derren Brown.
Walking down the street-the 'clicks' echos, will for example tell him
That he's next to a car
That there is a tall building in front of him etc

No trickery as I said, and absolutely amazing.

No one said there was any trickery. I said I thought I saw him on a show and I think that show was Derren Brown's.

He has other people on the show aside from himself you know. Especially if he wanted to talk about - say - heightened senses.

If I remember correctly there was a slate sold in the 1930s that was treated so it would make more noise when someone printed something in chalk. It was to help with sound reading.

I imagine this would take a lot of practice and would rarely be completely reliable. So many other ways that are more consistent in their results like the little device Dunninger used to hide while smoking a cigarette. That would always work.
