This paper aims at presenting the prototype for Braill-e-Book, a portable and user-friendly device that converts the large ocean of e-knowledge into the Braille format for the blind to access easily. The Braill-e-Book makes use of USB flash drives that contain several books in text format. It has a speech recognition system using which the user can search for the file name or its author, which when selected will be displayed on a refreshable display. Furthermore, the Braill-e-Book is equipped with the audio notifications to enable the user to navigate through the entire process easily. It is an innovative upgrade to the presently available electronic Braille display devices which are either not portable or have a PC dependency.
