Device that allows visually challenged to read without Braille
January 9, 2017
The Central Scientific Instruments Organization in Chandigarh is developing a portable device for people who are visually challenged.
The device will allow them to read non-Braille documents in Hindi and three other regional languages. It is called the 'Divya Nayan'.
It scans the written text and then reads it aloud to the visually impaired.
The device is useful for the illiterate and elderly who have a weaker eyesight.
The device is wireless, faster than a Braille reader and it costs around Rs 10,000.
