French inventor and teacher, Louis Braille, created this method in 1825. Braille was blind. While at school for the
blind in Paris, he met Charles Barbier. Barbier had created a system for writing for the blind where sample messages
coded in dots were imprinted on cardboard. In 1825, Braille started adapting this system to create the writing system
we now know as Braille.
