There is a growing awareness among visually impaired about the importance of higher education. They are not learning to use and trust the alternative techniques which blind persons must have if they are to be successful. Talking glossary is an innovative technique that helps the visually challenged people to overcome the problems which they face during their educational training. It is an Talking Glossary which gives synonyms of words given by the user through Braille code. This system overcomes the real time difficulties of visually impaired people, thereby improving their learning ability. Though the Talking Glossary is available in the market, it is costlier and the users must know the operation of QWERTY keypad which is difficult for the blind. This motivation stems to develop a low cost Talking Glossary provided with Braille keyboard for visually challenged people. It uses speech synthesis technology which provides the synonyms of the words in the form of audio output and helps to be independent in learning things.
