Braille was based on a tactile military code called night writing, developed by Charles Barbier
in response to Napoleon's demand for a means for soldiers to communicate silently at night and
 without light. Braille is named after its creator, Frenchman Louis Braille, who lost his eyesight
 due to a childhood accident. In 1824, at the age of 15, Braille developed his code for the French
 alphabet as an improvement on night writing.
