Whitepaper: Sypole: A Mobile Assistant for the Blind

by Faculte Polytechnique de MonsJan 01, 2008

This white paper describes an embedded device designed to provide textual information to the blind or visually impaired. For them, all that information, which exists in the daily life as banknotes, schedule of train, books, postal letters, is not easily accessible. The main aim of this system is to build an automatic text reading assistant which combines small-size, mobility and low cost price. The goal of this system is to improve their autonomy by the use of a mobile device anywhere and anytime.
