Hmm I've seen braille in a sentence  when refering to the code not
capitalized. I've not thought of this question before.

It seems to me that if Braille is a noun, then it's capitalized whether or
not you're referring to the person or the system. If it's a verb such as to
braille a document, than it is not.
