Abstract: 

With DynaBraille, you will be able to scan plain text and have it converted into braille in real time so it can be read with ease and without the help of another person. DynaBraille is targeted towards the visually impaired, and from our research there is currently no such product in the market that will provide the form and function that we do. Our proposed solution involves a camera to scan text, and with our dynamic braille pad convert the scanned text into braille letters and output it in real time.If time permits, we plan to implement other features such as voice output and braille conversion from files loaded in the product’s memory.
