We’ve all heard the phrase “neccessity is the mother of invention,” but that statement was true for Louis Braille, the inventor of the Braille system for people with vision impairments.
I came accross an article that describes how the then-14-year-old modified an existing code system used by the military in the 1800s to make it useful for who couldn’t see.
Now, braille signs are placed in many places…at elevators, doorways, etc. it’s amazing that something so innovative that can improve the lives of people with disabilities.
Braille allows for people to be more inclusive in their lifestyles, from work, to home and everything in between.
