This is indeed a novel project and will help a lot of visually challenged and
you will need 2 modules. One will be an Optical character recognition (OCR)
and other is Text to Speech converter.
For the OCR you can look up free ocr on google.
For the second module you can look up "festival".
hope this helps.
