Real Time Implementation of Optical Character Recognition Based TTS System using Raspberry pi

Sagar G. K, Shreekanth T


Thetext to speech (TTS) conversion technology is proposed to help the blind people and people with poor vision. According to survey done by World Health Organization (WHO) there are about 286 million blind people in this world and about 91% of them reside in developing countries. So there is necessity of portable TTS converter which should be affordable to help the blinds. To help the blind community a smart reader is proposed in this paper. It includes a web cam to capture input text page which is then processed by TTS unit installed in raspberry pi and the output is then amplified by audio and given out on speaker.
