Frank H. Hall (Superintendent of the Illinois Institution for the Blind) invented the first Braille writer in 1892. The most popular and durable one now in use was invented by David Abraham.

The Braille writing system itself was invented by blind Louis Braille, who was French, between 1821 and 1824.
