In schools and colleges for the blind, Braille is the popular medium of accessing textual educational information. However, in situations when the text does not contain diagrams, graphs, or maps, converting the text to speech would increase the reading speed of the blind student considerably. In this paper, the techniques used in designing and evaluating the performance of a microcomputer-based system which automatically reads out textual information in synthetic speech is described.
