Today is World Braille Day - celebrated on the anniversary of the birth of inventor Louis Braille, born on this day in 1809. Louis went blind aged 3 following an accident in his father's workshop. He invented Braille, which comprises of 6 dots in different arrangements to represent symbols and letters of the alphabet, aged just 12.
