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 dualmaterial case design. • Multimodal feedback via vibration motors. • A highresolution 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“alot more flexible and alot 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 :
