Braille Text Recognition – Moscow, Stavropol Region
Task description
Automatic recognition of texts written in Braille and transcoding them into Cyrillic for Russian, as well as Latin for English. Recognition is performed from photos and scans taken without the use of professional equipment. The solution of this problem works for the integration of blind and visually impaired people, expanding their communication opportunities.
Issues
Lack of constant communication between sighted and blind people. Teachers, relatives of blind and visually impaired children face the problem of checking the child's homework due to the lack of Braille reading skills. Also, automatic recognition of Braille texts will make it possible to reissue specialized textbooks in Braille, for which there are no digital sources, and to ensure the interaction of visually impaired children with teachers working with ordinary children.
Effects
The service allows you to:
  1. Attract teachers who do not know Braille to teach the blind and visually impaired.
  2. Simplify the work of teachers who work with the blind and visually impaired in inclusive programs in regular classrooms.
  3. Reissue Braille textbooks for which there is no digital source.
  4. Apply to blind people to submit written appeals to various organizations independently.
  5. Simplify communication between sighted and blind people.
  6. Blind children can participate in the All-Russian School Olympiad. Now the works written in Braille are first deciphered manually, and then checked by the jury of the Olympiad.
Target audience
Organizations and individuals who interact with blind and visually impaired people, educational institutions and close relatives of blind and visually impaired children, blind and visually impaired people.
