In today's society, disabled people are still a vulnerable group that does not receive the attention of the public. Due to physical defects, they cannot receive normal, high-quality education like the general public. In order to help the visually impaired people to read and learn comfortably, we have designed an barrier-free reader for them. And because our barrier-free reader is equipped with artificial intelligence technology, it only needs to say the book title, chapter, and paragraph, etc., and the reader rotates the device with braille and protrudes over the finger, the user Just hold the reader for a comfortable reading experience.
