Text is the media to convey and transmit information. Braille is extremely important for vision impaired people to exchange information through reading and writing. A braille translator is crucial tool for aiding people to understand braille messages. In this paper, we implement character-based braille translator using ResNet, there are three versions of ResNet we implement for braille classifiers, including ResNet-18, ResNet-34, and ResNet-50. We also implement a word-based braille detector using a novel solution called Adaptive Bezier-Curve Network (ABCNet), which is a Scene Text Recognition (STR) method for detecting word-based text in natural scenes. A comparison is present to evaluate the performance of ABCNet.
