Reading text image and text boards is hard for visually impaired persons. A person needs vision to access the information in text. The proposed system reads the text from image text and convert it into speech by using e-speak algorithm. The proposed system includes text extraction from scanned text image using tesseract optical character Recognition (OCR) and convert it into the speech using e-speak tool. The main aim of proposed system is to provide assistance to visually challenged persons. The faces can also be detected when persons move into frame using mode control. This paper proposes a camera based assistive text reading to provide an assistance to the visually impaired persons.
