A major challenge faced by people with visual impairments is “way-finding” – the ability of a person to find his or her way to a given destination or through a space. My thesis proposes a new assistive technology system for the visually impaired to aid in way-finding. This system is based on a camera cell phone, which is held by the user to find and read aloud spatially located physical markers in the environment.
