Abstract

The information spread faster in the form of electronic document lately. Blind persons require information as much as normal people. An appliance is needed to convert electronic text document in PC to Braille code format that could be read by blind persons.An assisting device has been designed to fulfill the need. The device system consists of Character Scanning program on PC and a microcontroller-based embosser. The main function of Character Scanning program on PC is to open .txt file, to scan character, and to collect words. This program is able to deliver groups of 30 characters that will be received and converted to Braille codes by the microcontroller system. Further on, the Braille codes will be dynamically embossed on Pin Matrix Mechanic module. The navigation of each delivered group words can be controlled by up and down buttons which prepared in the microcontroller system. A Dot Matrix LED display (light-based display) also prepared to assist partially blind persons.
