About the book Out of Darkness Louis Braille was stabbed in the eye and then he had to go to a blind school in Paris. Braille was trying to make a system for the blind people and children, but one day there was a man named Dr. Barbier and he made a system for in the dark and might work on the blind. ….. Makayla
Louis tried Barbier’s system and he could not find out which letter it was cause there was to many dots like 1-9 per. Letter. Then Barbier said that it did not matter cause blind don’t need to read. So then some of the town and the school went into a little room to see which system was better and that the blind could read. They took 1 new boy and 1 new girl. Barbier and Louis started punching holes in the paper. They bang in the boy and girl and the boy could not read Barbier’s cause the dots were too close, well that is what he said and the girl did Louis’s system and finished the sentence. Makayla
