FingerReader: Enabling People with Visual Impairments to Access Information on the go

2. Please provide a brief summary of the subject of your video!

People with visual impairments face numerous difficulties with existing state-of-the-art technologies including problems with accuracy, mobility, efficiency, cost, and more importantly social exclusion. The design of FingerReader address these challenges as it allows users to simply point at objects to perform a recognition and interpretation task on what the FingerReader sees and hear the result spoken to him or her through a bone conduction headset. We believe FingerReader will make a significant impact on how the visually impaired community can independently access information on the go.
