Designed for the visually impaired, the portable Access Lens system will use vision-based tracking to enable people to access paper documents with gestures.
The system will feature a camera that will scan the documents and software that can identify text and track gestures. A computerized grid will be laid over the document, which the user can move their finger over in order to hear the content read aloud or receive directional commands. The system will cross-check the text against a dictionary, which will help to ensure the correct.
