The difficulties faced by the visually impaired persons are the recognition of objects, colors and shapes.  ...  For the implementation of the system Ionic and Django Rest framework is used. The inception architecture which uses deep convolutional neural network is used for classifying objects or inputs.  ...  Acknowledgement We would like to thank the Computer Engineering Department, Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi Pakistan for all the key guidance, support and constant encouragement  ...
