FingerReader - Wearable Text-Reading Device  2

The FingerReader is a wearable text-reading device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people requiring help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation.    Take a look at the video…

The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line.



Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues.
