Braille Fun Fact #5 - Just because you’re blind doesn’t mean you don’t have to learn math. There’s a special version of braille just for mathematics called the Nemeth Code. It was invented by Dr. Abraham Nemeth and can be used to transcribe math, algebra and calculus.

World Braille Day Fact #4 - Braille takes up more space than the traditional alphabet, so braille books are much larger than their print counterparts. “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” is 10 volumes in Braille!

We're celebrating World Braille Day today by sharing facts! Here's #3 - There’s an asteroid named Braille. In 1999, NASA’s Deep Space 1 probe flew past an asteroid while on its way to photograph the Borrelly comet. NASA named the asteroid “9969 Braille” in honor of Louis Braille!

Today is World Braille Day! We're sharing interesting facts all day, and here's #1:

Louis Braille developed the 6-dot finger tip reading system known as Braille after Charles Barbier visited the school where Louis was a student. Barbier, a captain in Napoleon’s army, shared a communication code called Night Writing with the students, and although Louis was only ten years old when he met Charles, by age 15, Louis had changed the lives of people who are blind forever with his 6-dot communication system!
