Braille was based on a tactile military code called night writing, developed by Charles Barbier in response to Napoleon's demand 
for a means for soldiers to communicate silently at night and without light. Braille is named after its creator, Frenchman Louis Braille
who lost his eyesight due to a childhood accident. In 1824, at the age of 15, Braille developed his code for the French alphabet as an improvement 
on night writing.
