Title: READING ASSISTANCE SYSTEM FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Abstract:
Aspects of the present disclosure relate to aids for the visually impaired. A head-worn computer may include a processor and a sensor system adapted to detect a user's gesture indicating that the user is looking at a document and a camera adapted to capture an image of the document in correspondence to the user's gesture. The processor may be further adapted to enhance a portion of the captured image. The head-worn computer may further include an augmented reality display system, wherein the processor is further adapted to present the enhanced portion of the captured image as augmented reality content overlaid onto a non-enhanced view of a different portion of the document.
