Know Your Currency App

Srikar Balmuri
Advisor: Dr. Yanqing Zhang

A significant problem faced by people with visual disabilities is the inability to recognize paper currency due to the similarity of paper texture and size among different denominations. I have created an application that can help people recognize monetary denominations. The app allows a user to issue a command to open the camera. The camera will then photograph a bill and tell the user via speech what the bill's denomination is. This system uses speech-to-text to convert commands issued by the user. Once the bill has been recognized, the system uses text-to-speech to inform the user of the bill's denomination. Android supports converting text into speech and even allows the conversion of text into a variety of languages.
