Abstract – Camera-based assistive content read system is to help blind persons read content names and item bundling from hand-held questions in their day by day lives. To confine the item from jumbled foundations or other encompassing protests in the cam view. The project work is framed into three stages. First, Image capturing – Using a mini camera ,the text which the person need to read get captured as an image and  have to send to the image processing Platform. Secondly, Text identification – Using text recognition algorithm, the text will get filtered from the image Finally, speech output- the identification text codes are output to blind users in speech by using neural network in MATLAB.
