Louis Braille invented Braille at 15
French boy Louis Braille was accidentally blinded in one eye at age three and a disease cost him sight in his other eye at age five.
A decade later, in 1824, Braille invented his own reading and writing language made of dots.
This eponymous invention is now used around the world and has given blind people the priceless gift of reading.
