Abstract

Some of the major problems encountered by the blind and visually impaired people are navigation and Entity detection. The sudden spike of technology has led to the invention of several gadgets and devices that are of great use to the visually impaired and blind people. Our proposed system uses Haar Cascade algorithm for object and facial recognition. It uses OCR (Optical Character recognition) for text recognition. USB camera placed on the device takes a picture and detects the object from a database and the name of the device is rendered to the person by speech through their headphones
