Abstract – When a person depends on some other person for his own work it may be called as disability. This may be natural or by any accident. For human beings Visual impartment is a kind of disability .As there is a rapid development in the field of science and technology there are many modules to help the visually impaired and blind. Still shopping at the supermarket is being tricky for them. So they obviously relay on some others. So to overcome this issue this proposed model provides the visually impaired people a better way of shopping on the implementation of the latest technology. To identify the products the model uses RFID .An audio stream assists the people in the super market on dynamically. In order to make a smart super market the packing of things is made simple by the implementation of Zig – Bee transceiver to transmit/receive the product information. Therefore the current queuing system may be overcome. The ultimate aim of our proposed system is to eliminate assistance for visually impaired people on shopping and provide them a sophisticated, convenient, friendly environment on low cost. By the implementation of this idea the customers may be attracted towards the smart way shopping and this may improve the business. This mainly facilitates the visually impaired and visually challenged customers and gains a higher attention in the public.
