The Louis Braille Online Resource provides information about Louis Braille and the braille code he created.

​Louis Braille was fifteen years old when he developed his raised dot method of reading and writing. He called it “my alphabet.” His alphabet is now called braille in honor of the young man who devised it. It has been ​adapted to hundreds of languages and ​dialects throughout the world.​
