Software tools


A tool which can automate the creation of Tactile Diagrams and help in reducing the production costs of transcribed books for the blind persons. So with reduced manual interventions, production of tactile books will be cheap and rapid.
The Maths and Science books of class 9 & 10 are used to test and build the tool, with aim of including the entire NCERT catalog in future. The tool is run on scanned or digital images taken from the coursebooks and converts them into SVG format in which all the text portion, region, line and circle are separately identified and which further can easily be edited and modified by Tactile Graphics Specialist.


  • Text Extraction:
  • Detecting the text portion in image and extracting of English/Hindi characters. These characters are converted into Braille and placed back in the same area of the image as output.

  • Region / Line or Circle Extraction :
  • Extracting the regions or Lines / Circles to convert into scalable format.
  • Text and Region Placement
  • Placing the text and regions generated in the final output image.
