Abstract: In this paper we have presented the design of the voice based navigation system for blind using voice recognition module and GPS module implemented on arduino board. This system helps the blind person to navigate. The blind person will give the destinationís name as the input to voice recognition module. GPS module continously receives the latitude and longitude of the current location . GPS compares it with the destinationís latitude and longitude. The blind person receives the pronounced directions which he needs to follow to reach his destination.
