To highlight the work of Louis Braille, the inventor of the reading and
writing system used by blind people everywhere, and to emphasize the
of the system, it is practice of the National Federation of the Blind to use
a capital B when writing any instance of the word "Braille." However, it has
been a convention of the Library of Congress to begin the word with
lowercase b when used in any context other than a title or as a name.
maintain uniformity within this program, the National Federation of the
Blind uses the lowercase b on the word "braille" in all written material
to the braille certification courses, unless the word is part of a title or
indicates a name.
