Abstract

This study presents a method to enable the Muslim’s blind user to read the Al-Quran using Braille Display with software help. The software reads the database which contains all verses of Al-Quran and user will need to select the verse and ayah to read. The data will be transmited to the Braille Display for blind people to touch and read the display. A user friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) will be used to fulfill the ergonomics for the visually impaired user’s physical capabilities. Several approaches are used to design and implement interface for blind users like speech or sound output and Braille display. The Braille codes can be displayed using the Braille panel. The design interface system for the visually impaired users in learning Al_Quran is presented.
