Text Adaptor / visually impaired product

Text Adaptor
Text Adaptor

If a person who is visually impaired goes to a library, how many books would he be able to read?
We assume that there would not be many books for him to read. As they can read only the books with the text converted into the braille, their access to the contents are certainly limited. Text Adaptor detects the texts in the books and rapidly converts them to the braille codes. Allowing the non-impaired and the impaired to share the same books is the goal of this design.
