The montage also shows Helen Keller reading Braille and some modern Braille books. Braille was born near Paris, France, and became blind aged three. Braille studied at the Institution des Jeunes Aveugles (Institute for the Young Blind) from the age of ten and became a professor in 1826. He created the braille system in 1829. This system is based on combinations of six raised dots which can either represent individual letters or whole words. Braille is now used in music, mathematics and science, as well as for written languages.
