Abstract: In today’s world, communication has become terribly simple thanks to the combination of communication technology and also the Internet. Email is one of the widely used ways of communication. However, it is difficult for the visually impaired to use this technology because it requires visual perception. Although many new advances have been made in the effective use of computers, no naive users without visual impairments can use this technology as effectively as ordinary naive users. Thus, in this study, firstly we review all the existing voice-based email systems whether it’s desktop applications, websites, or mobile applications, and found some drawbacks and flaws. After that, we present our improved voice-based email system that will help even a naïve visually impaired person to use the services for communication. The system will not let the user make use of the keyboard and mouse instead will work only on voice operations and speech conversion to text. The developed system uses the PBKDF2 algorithm with SHA256 hash and provides better security while storing passwords. Also, this system can be used by any normal person. The system allows the normal user to choose between voice and normal operations to manage time efficiently. The system we developed is completely based on interactive voice response that’s why it is user-friendly and efficient to use.
