Abstract

With the exponential advancements in technology each year, a plethora of applications have been developed ranging from the most basic to the most advanced use cases. The amelioration in the smartphone industry has proven to be a major factor in the rapid development of mobile applications. Although technology has been evolving, we are yet to see a big break in the medical field to help the visually impaired people. The visually impaired person misses many opportunities because of a lack of confidence or dependence on others. The proposed work is aiming at reducing this dependence and at the same time improving the confidence of visually impaired person by enabling them to use their other sensory organs to understand their surroundings. The proposed application “Navigation Assistant for Visually impaired Person- Touch Tap See” is aimed at providing real-time assistance to a visually impaired person at workplaces or Educational Institutes, which are generous to offer the opportunity to them along with other common people.
