January is National Braille Literacy Month

I just learned that January is National Braille Literacy Month.  Braille is the reading and writing system for the blind and visually impaired.     In recognition of the month and the movement to improve literacy rates among the blind and visually impaired, Online Colleges has an interesting post with 15 facts about Braille, including the fact that Braille was developed by Louis Braille when he was only 15.
