Reading text is one of the essential needs of the visually impaired people. We developed a mobile system that can read Turkish scene and book text, using a fast gradient-based multi-scale text detection algorithm for real-time operation and Tesseract OCR engine for character recognition. We evaluated the OCR accuracy and running time of our system on a new,(More)
