Divya Nayan

Divyanayan

Divyanayan, an initiative of CSIR-Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO), Chandigarh, is a reading machine for visually impaired or illiterate person where any printed or digital document can be accessed in the form of speech output. The device uses a contact line scanner for acquiring the image of a printed document. User manually scans the document by placing the device on printed document without knowing the direction of text flow, moving the device over the document to be read. It uses optical character recognition technique to convert the image into text and a text to speech converter further converts the text into audio. Audio files are organized in the machine and can be listened back. The device is standalone, portable, completely wireless and IoT enabled. It can analyze a multicolumn document to provide seamless reading and is capable of page, text, and word level navigation while reading. Currently the device supports Hindi and English but can be further configured to other Indian and foreign languages. It is equipped with user inter-faces such as internal speaker, rechargeable battery, USB, headphones, SD card, Wi-Fi and bluetooth.
