MILE Lab at IISc: Developing technologies to enable the specially abled

A braille embosser, which prints out text in braille pattern, costs a few lakhs as compared to a regular printer, which costs around a few thousand rupees. Can anything be done so that printed text can be easily digitized and made available in forms usable by people with visual disability? Or, can text be made available in audio format to the visually impaired? Indeed yes! Medical Intelligence and Language Engineering (MILE) Laboratory at IISc seeks to provide solutions to challenges faced by the specially abled.
