Finger Reader -A Wearable DeviceINTRODUCTION • Finger Reader is a wearable device that helps in reading printed text. • It is a tool for visually impaired that assists in printed text and language translation •It is a 3D printed ring like device worn on the index finger.• It has a small camera on the top which scans the printed text and monitors finger movements. • Wearers scans the text with their finger and get an audio feedback of the words. • If the user goes away from the text baseline, Finger reader algorithm gives the feedback. • It helps them to maintain straight scanning motion within the line.Technologies UsedHardware Details • A new dual-material case design. • Multimodal feedback via vibration motors. • A high-resolution mini video camera. Software Details • A Text Extraction Algorithm • Hardware Control Driver • Integration Layer with OCR • Flite text- to- speechWorkingWhen the user goes away from the text, feedback is provided by the two vibration motors. Auditory cues alerts the user at the beginning and end of the reading passages. A novel tracking based algorithm extracts text locally and sequentially instead of whole text blocks and pages.Advantages of Finger Reader DeviceFinger Reader device can help them gain access to a greater number of learning resources. It is“a-lot more flexible and a-lot more immediate” than any other device. It provides a new way to visually impaired people to read printed text locally and sequentially.Follow us on :-
