I'm sure they do. They probably just perceive things different. This advertisement came up while I was watching some anime. It's about how a little, blind girl sees the Wizard of Oz. It was actually an interesting ad. I recommend you watch it. I'm sure it will help answer your question.

People who never used to be blind but became blind later in life probably can. They still have imagination and they know what it was like to see. As for people who have been blind since birth... I have no idea.

A 100% blind person from birth can only have dreams in which they hear sounds or feel things. If you haven't been blind your entire life you can experience dreams as a normal person would.

I'm mainly referring to people who have been blind since birth. But it's okay if you don't know. The other part make sense.

What eclair said is indeed correct, but from what i could find, there are also people who were born blind than can see their dreams.
And even in full color apparently.
edit: scratch that, i misread. Only people who became blind are still capable of seeing dreams.

So instead of seeing a dream they'll hear it?

Probably. I never really thought about it. But we experience sound in our dreams, and also feel touch. So...yeah

Depends what you mean by "see" cause we don't use our eyes to see in our dreams. If anything it's probably more symbolic based, relic-like images brought forth from the deepest recesses of the the unconscious.

My Turn:

It's interesting. I always thought that they just see dreams they way I see everything around me. They make up their own colors and scenery in a way that is similar to the world they don't see.

I'd say audio only dreams would be hard to remember compared to dreams fuelled by sensory input from all senses, e.g. the dreams we non blind people (From birth) have, so blind people (From birth) most likely forget most of their dreams if not all.
