The Braille Glove was originally created by Ryan Patterson who was 18 at the time. It was an idea that sparked after he saw a deaf person in Burger King struggling to place an order. He wanted to create an electronic method that would make it easier for people to communicate.

Maurice de la Sizeranne created a braille library which eventually expanded into a braille music library. He had a big interest in literature for the blind so he founded the Revue du Braille.
