Simply put the blind user can have a text message read back to them from the contact's own voice. A bot takes a sample from a voice note that has been sent to the blind user in the past and then constructs an audio alphabetical library so that the bot can construct full sentences. This database will be used to construct an audio speech that is generated from the texts of the contact.
Braille is a form of written language that can be read by blind people where they feel the writings with their fingertips. Braille based displays can be used to show the messages so that a blind person. They are implemented by using screens that have small protrusions that can be extended or withdrawn. These protrusions can be controlled to give written messages to the blind person so that they can receive text messages and read them discreetly without having to listen to the messages. This gives the blind person more privacy and allows messages to be communicated even in a noisy environment.
