Blind guide is a technology in navigation systems for visually impaired people. It is designed to provide dynamic interaction and the ability to change to fit changed circumstances guided with the use of audio instructions. To make the blind people active and independent it bring up the confidence and participation as possible. Blind guide is a software application which can be entered into the app after a successful login by the user using voice recognition security. A voice recognition security process is used for the blind users. Voice recognition technology is the process of identifying and understanding the voice signals of users. A unique features of the users voice are extracted and stored at the time of registration. This stored information is compared with the users voice sample. Blind guide provide the information and guidance to move from one place to another safely using android base smart phone. TTS (Text to Speech) is used in navigation system to provide navigation through voice for blind people. Also it uses Google map API to apply map information.
