Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the invention provide devices and methods for capturing text found in a variety of sources and transforming it into a different user-accessible formats or medium. For example, the device can capture text from a magazine and provide it to the user as spoken words through headphones or speakers. Such devices are useful for individuals such as those having reading difficulties (such as dyslexia), blindness, and other visual impairments arising from diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and glaucoma.
(FR)
Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent des dispositifs et des procédés de capture d'un texte trouvé dans diverses sources et de transformation de ce texte en différents formats ou support accessibles à l'utilisateur. Par exemple, le dispositif peut capturer un texte d'une revue et le fournir à l'utilisateur en tant que mots prononcés par l'intermédiaire d'écouteurs ou de haut-parleurs. Ces dispositifs sont utiles par exemple pour les personnes souffrant de difficultés de lecture (telles que la dyslexie) ou présentant une cécité ou d'autres déficiences visuelles dues à la rétinopathie diabétique, la cataracte, la dégénérescence maculaire liée à l'âge (AMD), et le glaucome.
