 Louis Braille facts

  • His system remains known worldwide simply as braille
  • Blinded in both eyes as a result of an early childhood accident, Braille mastered his disability while still a boy
  • He excelled in his education and received scholarship to France's Royal Institute for Blind Youth
  • While still a student there, he began developing a system of tactile code that could allow blind people to read and write quickly and efficiently
  • Inspired by the military cryptography of Charles Barbier, Braille constructed a new method built specifically for the needs of the blind
  • He presented his work to his peers for the first time in 1824
  • In adulthood, Braille served as a professor at the Institute and had an avocation as a musician, but he largely spent the remainder of his life refining and extending his system
  • It went unused by most educators for many years after his death, but posterity has recognized braille as a revolutionary invention, and it has been adapted for use in languages worldwide
