Abstract: There is about 45 million blind people and 135 million visually impaired people living across the world. Having the Disability of visual text reading has had a massive influence on the quality of life for the visually disabled people. Even though there have been several devices discovered and designed specifically to support the visually challenged people. By aiding them in viewing objects using an alternating sense such as sound and touch, the progress of text reading device is still in its development phase. Text to speech synthesizers (TTS) have already been implemented using MATLAB and OCR software. In this paper we study the possibility of transforming the texted input into speech (text-to-speech) utilising the Lab VIEW ‘s programming environment. In order to achieve this purpose, the text-to-speech interfaces already provided by the Microsoft Speech SDK for TTS applications have been studied. An user friendly application for our VI is developed from scratch and it can be installed effortlessly in any computer system without any cost for installation. As engineer’s main aspiration lies in making inventions that makes life simpler with the help of technologies, this is one such invention that aid to simplify real life difficulties.
