How did Louis Braille, a young man living in the 1800s, create his namesake system enabling those who are blind to read? In this edition of Today in Technology, Microsoft President Brad Smith and Communications Director Carol Ann Browne visit Braille’s childhood home in Coupvray, France. We explore the circumstances that inspired his invention before returning to Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, WA, where our developers are building on the past to help create a future with more accessible technology.
