ABOUT







Louis Braille

Louis Braille (b. Coupvray, France, 1809, d. Paris, 1852) is the inventor of the six dot raised Braille reading system for the blind first proposed in his book Method of Writing Words, Music and Plain Songs by Means of Dots for Use by the Blind and Arranged for Them (1829). In fact, the Braille system was based on a method of communication originally developed by Charles Barbier in response to Napoleon's demand for a code that soldiers could use to communicate silently and without light at night, called night writing.
