The biggest challenge faced by deaf, blind, or dumb people is communication. Some people face difficulties in communicating with others due to their inability of hearing or sighting. Some of them are deaf or blind by born whereas a few of them lose their hearing or visual ability by accidents. Recently, there have been studies and researches on how to make their life easier by different approaches such as mobile applications, devices based on hand gloves for the deaf-dumb, the internet, etc. This project aims to develop a method for communication for people with sensory impairment with the help of IoT. The main purpose of the project is to help them communicate more easily with both the ordinary people as well as sensory impaired. The proposed system would make better use of technologybased on Raspberry Pi with some advanced features of converting. In this project, there are two major conversion units. One of them is converting audio into text, which favors the deaf people. The other one is an image to audio conversion, where the image is converted into text via image processing and the text is converted into audio, this proportion of the system is useful for the blind people. There are few additional features for blind people such as a voice calculator, voice assistant, and object detector to help them with moving around and their basic needs. The output for deaf people will be shown on the LCD and the blind people will be able to hear through the speakers. It is expected that communicating for sensory impaired will be easier by using the system. The prototype can be accessed easily by the deaf and for the blind people. There is a voice assistant by which they can access all the functions mentioned above. It can be used to help the sensory impaired in their education. An observation of the outcomes of the project was done by providing different types of components for a better result. All the components worked properly to make the system more efficient. The main goal of the project is to reduce difficulties in their communication, among themselves and with ordinary people and this project can be made more useful in the future by making the design simpler.
