Braille is a tactile writing system used by the blind and the visually impaired. It is named after its creator, Frenchman Louis Braille, who went blind following a childhood accident.
Braille characters are small rectangular blocks called cells that contain tiny palpable bumps called raised dots. The number and arrangement of these dots distinguish one character from another.
