Allen Samuels: A Device Concept For Braille Reading Persons

A device that scans documents for visual impair person to hear the text

Stamps Dean and Professor Emeritus Allen Samuels introduces a concept and design for a device to assist people with vision impairments who may not be able to read Braille. When a printed text, Braille or handwritten document is inserted into the front slot, the device reads the contents aloud through speakers Language chips enable the device to translate and speak in many languages. By describing the concept in text and models, this initiates what hopefully will be further development, resulting in an actual functioning device.
