The Fraunhofer-Institute of Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS Dresden and the TU Dresden, Institute of Technical Acoustics cooperate in the development of a portable reading device, which should be used in the area of disabled persons, especially for blinds and people with poor eyesight. The text reading is accomplished by a hand scanner. The main item is a new real-time ASIC speech processor chip, which has been developed. All speech parameters, which are necessary for the speech synthesis, have been optimized for the German language.
