Today Prof.A.G. Ramakrishnan from IISc, Bangalore posted an announcement in INFITT discussion group announcing openings for BE Graduates for Research Positions at Mile Lab, IISc, Bangalore. This caught my eye as the project described was exciting one involving software applications for visually challenged. I am giving a link in this post to the announcement for the benefit of graduates inclined towards research who will find this position interesting.
MILE Laboratory at Indian Institute of Science is actively involved in developing an automated book reader for the visually challenged. This research involves image mosaicing, page layout analysis, script recognition, speech synthesis and natural language processing.
