In the system, a microphone is used as an input device. Speech commands are recognized by the Speech Recognition (SR) system. A scanner is used to scan the text of documents or books. An Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system is used to recognize the scanned page. The Text-to-Speech (TTS) system is used to output the page contents as speech via a headphone or loudspeaker.
