World Braille Day

Frenchman, Louis Braille (1809 – 1852), who was blinded in both eyes as the result of a childhood accident, invented a tactile system of reading and writing, known as braille, for people with sight loss.
Although there are now alternative options for most types of communication some people with sight loss still elect to use braille.
