Abstract: Natural scene text is broadly observed in our everyday life and has countless imperative multimedia applications. Natural scene text typically show signs of outsized discrepancy in font and languages but endures from low resolution, occlusions and intricate background. An android based application Smart Eye which works in offline mode is proposed here for text detection which robustly perceives the text in natural images in real time and translates the text present in image to speech which can assist people with vision disability. The spoken is also converted to text which can aid people with hearing disability.
