Abstract :

Assistive technologies are being developed for Visually impaired people in order to live confidently. This project work proposes a camera-based assistive text reading framework to help blind persons read text labels and product packaging from hand-held objects in their daily lives. The project work is framed into three stages . First, Image capturing – Using a mini camera ,the text which the user need to read get captured as an image and have to send to the image processing Platform. Secondly, Text recognition – Using text recognition algorithm, the text will get filtered from the image. Finally, Speech output - A filtered text will be passed into this system to get an audio output. This project work can be able to insist the blind people in their daily life. The entire application will run on Raspberry Pi.
