Abstract

Visually impaired people face tremendous inconvenience in their routine life. The proposed system aims at making them self-sufficient by providing assistance to read the product labels thus fostering their daily activities. This work deals with an idea of making a portable hand-held device which recognizes the product labels and provides an audio output of the same. Portability of the device is achieved using Raspberry pi which has an inbuilt audio output jack. The camera contributes in capturing the product image which further undergoes text extraction. The extracted text is then processed under the OCR algorithm to recognize the text and then the audio output is generated.
