IIT-Delhi alumnus launches 'TouchVision' for visually-impaired

Ankita Gulati, an alumnus of IIT-Delhi, has launched a device named 'TouchVision' for visually-impaired. The device narrates the content in the picture when a visually-impaired person touches it. Through this device, visually-impaired can access the diagrams and pictorial content.

Gulati said, "A foldable stand is used to position a smartphone camera for scanning tactile material and pointer ring on user’s index finger is used to read the text. The smartphone through an app provides simultaneous audio to the user as per index finger's location. Label and description of the diagrams are narrated based on different finger gestures performed by the user."

"Students are not encouraged to study mathematics and science beyond class 8 in India due to the unavailability of the content. Even in other subjects, diagrams are omitted out of the books. Visually-challenged students are unable to access the entire curriculum even in inclusive schools. This limits their employment, education and developmental opportunities," she added.
