Many tools and services are available to blind and visually impaired people that give them access to the written word, such as Braille, audio books and online voice services. However, none of these methods can help them acquire information about things that haven’t been rendered into an accessible form, such as calling cards, contracts, brochures, newspapers, magazines and documents. To solve this problem, I have developed 'Voice Stick', a portable scanner that instantly translates written information into audio form, helping people live more independent lives.
