Abstract: Around 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide out of which 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. About 90% of the world's visually impaired live in low-income setting and 82% of people living with blindness are aged 50 and above. So this project aims to improve the day to day lives of the blind user by providing them some information about the environment. Keeping in mind the challenges faced by the blind we had come up with an android application . In this paper we present the main features and appearance of software modules dedicated to the aid of visually impaired or blind users. The main aim of developing this Application is to reduce and collapse the need of separated devices for object recognition and detection. The software modules are designed for Android operating system, used in majority of the smart phones today. There are two main trainable and educable modules, namely, the object recognition module and the Object detection module. Image Processing (Euclidean) algorithms used to identify the objects. Notification to the users is given by means of voice actions.
