We found a problem with technological help for the blind. We decided to make this program to help cover that gap.

What it does

POC: Translates logos to speech in order to help the blind in everyday situations

Goal: Translate street signs, hazard signs among others.

How we built it

Python, OpenCV, JSON, HPE, time, HavenOnDemand,Twilio

Challenges we ran into

Creating a time loop to take photos on a set period of instructions while updating the photo writing to a file every time a new photo was taken.
The second challenge was requesting the API from HPE and getting the API to acknowledge our request.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Creating the program and finishing.

What we learned

How to handle JSON objects
How to work with Rest API's
Use of Twilio

What's next for Blind View

Future applications include creating our own database to include street signs
