Reason to celebrate: January 4, 2017 is National World Braille Day.

World Braille Day

World Braille Day commemorates the childbirth of Louis Braille, inventor of the reading and composing device used by millions of blind and partly sighted folks across the world.

Born in France in January 1809, Braille came to be blind adhering to a crash when he was just 3 years of ages. Eager to examine and access the magnum opus of literature, he eventually made a language based around designs of elevated dots theoretically that could possibly be felt and as a result read by those which were unable to see.

Though not a public vacation in any type of nation, World Braille Day provides a possibility for educators, charities and non-government organizations to elevate understanding regarding concerns dealing with the blind and the importance of continuing to produce works in Braille, providing the blind with accessibility to the very same reading and discovering possibilities as the spotted.
