Abstract

Abstract - Image processing can be applied to provide augmented vision, where novel techniques such as object detection, contrast modulation and text to speech synthesis can aid the visually impaired. The image processing technique of detecting an image edge with the Sobel method is utilized to augment text for simulated low vision to demonstrate the effectiveness of applied image processing in aiding the visually impaired.
