Not that I've learned Braille, but the Braille teacher from the
Vocational Rehabilitation center I went to for evaluation had a few
students in her class that were certainly over 50.  If I had to hazard a
guess I would say that it is less a function of age than physical
ability.  I tried to distinguish between a few easy characters on a
large cell card but could not.  I have to mention though that I have
considerable scar tissue on my fingers from testing blood glucose for
2 decades, carpal tunnel in both wrists (only one of which was bad
enough for a release) and I might be showing a bit of nerve degradation
in my extremities.

Are practically zero,
But those who wish to be civilians,
They run into the millions.
