This category lists pages and sites about the life of Louis Braille (1809-1852). Blind himself and a teacher of the blind, Braille modified the Barbier "point writing" system which had previously been used for coded army messages and created an alphabet of embossed characters that allowed the blind to "read" with their fingertips.
