Assistive technologies are being developed for visually impaired people in order to live confidently. This paper proposes a camera-based assistive text reading framework and to process the captured object and obtain its details to help blind persons read text labels and product packaging from hand-held objects in their daily lives. The paper is framed into three stages. First, image capturing - Using a mini camera, the text which the user need to read get captured as an image and have to send to the image processing platform. Secondly, text recognition - using text recognition algorithm, the text will get filtered from the image.
