Louis Braille
Louis Braille is a French educator and inventor of the reading and writing system for the blind and visually impaired. Its system has remained virtually unchanged to this day and is known the world over by its simple name of Braille. Having been blind in one eye since the age of 3 in an accident with a sewn workshop in his father's harness store, an infection that spreads to both eyes, leading to total blindness. At that time there were not many resources available for the blind but never very few, he excelled in school and received scholarships from the Royal Academy for Blind Teenagers of France. While still a student there, he began developing a tactile coding system that could allow the blind to read and write quickly and efficiently. Inspired by Charles Barbier's military cipher, Braille has constructed a new method designed specifically for the needs of the blind. He presented his work to his colleagues for the first time in 1824 .
