Louis Braille certainly wasn't your average teenager. Blind from the age of four, he was only fifteen when in 1824 he invented a reading system that converted printed words into columns of raised dots. Through touch, Braille opened the world of books to the sightless, and almost two hundred years later, no one has ever improved upon his simple, brilliant idea.

Born in France in 1809, Louis Braille was the fourth child of a village saddler. At the age of three, he stabbed himself in the eye with a pointed tool taken from his father's work bench. Some thirteen years later he again took a sharp tool from the same bench and used it to create a code of raised dots punched through sheets of paper. With the patience of genius, he perfected his code – still unsurpassed – and fashioned an alphabet that opened the world of learning to the blind. Louis Braille died at the age of forty-three, unknown and unhonoured. His superiors at the Royal Institute for the Young Blind in Paris would not recognise a system that was not based on the shapes of the alphabet. Lennard Bickel researched this story in Paris and in the small village where Louis Braille was born. He tells of the trials and torments of young blind man struggling amid the harshest conditions to perfect something he believed in. Triumph Over Darkness, first published in 1988, is a stirring story of determination and tenacity in the face of adversity.

Louis Braille was only twelve years old - and he was blind. But he made up his mind - somehow he was going to invent an easy way for all blind people to read and write ? In 1809, Simon-Rene and Monique Braille lived in a small town in France. The town of Coupvray was 25 miles (40 km) outside Paris. Life was good for the family. Simon worked as a harness maker and leatherer. He made many items out of leather, including harnesses and saddles for horses, leather slippers and shoes, and leather satchels. Simon was well known in the town, and his work supported his wife and three children, two girls and a boy. On January 4, 1809, the new year brought the family a new baby boy. They named him Louis. Find out how Louis Braille lost his sight, and how he invented an alphabet that helped all blind children to read in this fun 15-minute biography.
