Abstract
Louis Braille was blinded in an accident at the age of three in the early 1800's. His desire to learn earned him a place at the Royal Institute for Blind Youth in Paris. Young Louis's excitement at being in the school was dampened by the tedious method of using raised letters to read. Louis developed the dot alphabet now called braille.
