Glasses with artificial vision for reading texts allow people with visual disabilities to perform much better activities in this society, accessing all kinds of written information and obtaining an adequate inclusion in the daily activities and the education. Glasses are equipped with an embedded system, with the software of text recognition and audio playback. This prototype uses a word recognition system with a Pi Cam that distinguishes the word electronically by means of a simple board computer, Raspberry Pi 3B+ and emits the sound of the word to headphones. Audio-assisted text reading glasses were designed to be a support tool for non-sighted people, and it is a low-cost device with easy functionality, which allows independence in the user. The performance tests for the validation of the prototype were carried out with different sizes and font letters; in addition, it was obtained that font sizes higher than 16 and print letters must be used.
