Braille is a written code that helps blind and visually impaired people read using indentations and bumps that can be read when felt with a finger. Braille is celebrated on the birthday of its creator, Louis Braille, a French man who was himself blind. He invented Braille at only 15-years-old when he was frustrated with the current process for reading while blind. Today Braille is used by people all over the world. It can be translated into any language and used to read other things such as music and math.
