Abstract: Among the total population of world, nearly 270 million people are blind and 48 million people have no proper vision. The disability to read text visually has its effect on personal life of blind people through several instruments are develop to enable the blind people to visual things through sense of sound and touch, The design of devices that reads text is still in the initial stage. The present system for reading text has number of limitation. These systems recognize only few particular shapes or colors. Sometimes they required user assistance and they are expensive too. Hence it is necessary to develop a system that has built a technology to identify and read text a loud to blind people. The theme of the project is to develop a device that can identify text of Kannada, Tamil and English languages change it into voice and audio. The textual characters are Pre-processed by a module which also recognized it. The letters in the text are separated followed by the resizing and story in text file. All these are achieved with the assistance of MATLAB. Finally, the recognized text is heard in the form of speech by the visually impaired people.
