This assisted reading device could one day eliminate the need for braille    ;D

By Shawn Knight on April 17, 2014, 2:15 PM

A handful of researchers at MITís Media Labs are working on a device capable of helping visually impaired and blind individuals read without the need for Braille. The FingerReader is equipped with a small camera that scans printed text and reads it out loud using a synthesized voice.

The current prototype is worn on the finger and is said to weigh no more than a regular ring. It uses heavily modified open source software and can read 12-point and larger printed text as well as on-screen text from, say, a Kindle.

hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20
