TRUTH !!
at the age of three, Louis Braille accidentally poked his eye with his father's awl. within a year, he was totally blind.
while a student at a school for the blind, he was inspired by a military code using dots and dashes that could be felt in the dark and came up with the idea of using no more than six dots per letter.
in 1824, at the age of fifteen, he unveiled the Braille alphabet.
