We always see a common question about dreams that "Do you dream in color?" but suddenly a question came to my mind as to what does a blind ( by birth ) human see in his dream ?

I followed both links given by SaswatPadhi. They confirmed what I always thought.

To put it simply, blind people do dream but not in pictures.

Agree with senaratne, they can't see pictures, but they can dream, whatever they think about.

It would be fascinating to know what they actually dream about though

I guess, through sense of touch, smell (olfactory), sound (auditory), taste and so on.
