Abstract : With today's modern lifestyle, ICT devices that were once considered as luxuries have turned into necessities. One of the main problems associated with these ICT devices is that they all come with separate remote controllers. All these remote controllers have got different buttons which are designed in their own customized way. So there is a lack of commonality or interoperability between different devices or between different vendors. Now, this becomes a major problem when the visually challenged people need to use these devices. In this paper, we present a novel approach which acts as a universal intelligent remote controller for all the electronic devices and which is extremely user-friendly to the visually challenged. It uses two transceivers- one at the ICT device end which is used to communicate directly with the ICT device and the other is the user end device i.e. the Smart phone.
