Transcript of Louis Braille
In 1812, in the small village of France, 3-year-old Louis Braille played in his father's harness shop next to the family's house.
His father stepped outside the shop to help a customer.
Louis thought he would try to punch a hole in a piece of leather. He grabbed the tool and tried to push it through the leather. The tool slipped from his hand and flew up and into his left eye.
Within a short time Louis Braille became blind in both eyes.
At the age of 15,
Louis created a code using an old system of the soldiers.
How does Braille Work?
Each Braille character, is made from six dot positions, arranged in a rectangle containing two columns of three dots each.
The dots are raised at any of the six positions so they can be felt by the fingers.
