Web-Based System for Automatic Reading of Technical Documents for Vision Impaired Students
A web-based system for automatic reading of technical documents focused on vision-impaired primary-school students is presented in the paper. An overview of the system, both its backend (used by teachers to create and manage the documents) and frontend (used by students for viewing and reading the documents), is given. Text-to-speech synthesis utilised for the automatic reading and, especially, the automatic processing of mathematical and physical formulas are described as well.
