Bot/earpiece to help visually impaired persons

I am writing to propose the development of a bot/earpiece to help visually impaired people in their daily lives. With advancements in technology such as natural language processing, we can leverage artificial intelligence to offer a practical solution for the visually impaired.

My proposed solution will consist of a bot or earpiece that communicates with the user through speech recognition and cognitive computing. The bot or earpiece will perform the following tasks:

  1. Navigation: The bot/earpiece can provide real-time navigation guidance using voice commands, ensuring that the user is able to navigate the environment and reach their destination safely.

  2. Object recognition: The bot/earpiece can identify objects in the user’s vicinity and provide a verbal description. For example, it can inform the user of the colour, shape and size of the object.

  3. Text Recognition: The bot/earpiece can read out texts that are in front of or near the user, including menus, signs, and labels.

  4. Personal assistant: The bot/earpiece can answer questions, set reminders, make phone calls, and send messages on the user’s behalf. This functionality can significantly enhance the user’s independence and productivity.

My proposed solution presents several benefits, including:

  1. Accessibility: With the bot/earpiece, blind people can easily access information, communicate and navigate independently.

  2. Affordability: This proposed solution would be more affordable than some existing assistive technologies.

  3. Reliability: The bot/earpiece will be designed to be highly reliable and available 24/7, providing the user with a reliable companion.

  4. Customisation: The bot/earpiece can be customised according to the user’s personal preferences and requirements, allowing a tailored experience.

In conclusion, our proposed solution presents a practical and affordable way for visually impaired persons to access information, navigate the environment and communicate independently. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this proposal further and explore how we can develop this bot/earpiece to help improve the lives of of visually impaired persons.


Hi Rashpal again great stuff mate, this is something I believe saleem has been working on, or something similar i believe I will confirm, it’s being created through the Dijets health network and hopefully will be readily available in the near future, aswell as some other great products for this industry. Great stuff.

Keep up the good work mate :+1:

A genuinely great idea, this would be a valuable asset to DIJETS as a leading product in the healthcare field, I can definitely approve of this idea.

Nice one @Rbassi23


Hi Rashpal,
A very interesting and innovative, great idea.
I can definitely see that there is a workstream emerging from some of our thoughts on the Care and Healthcare Sector and we could really do some great work in this industry.
