Both the elderly and those with vision impairments have a difficult time accessing the information on their prescription labels. But new technology allows these individuals to listen to the label data out loud using a clever talking device. Pharmacies across the country, including local sites in Miami, are offering an innovative service called ScripTalk to their customers that are print impaired.

ScripTalk Talking Labels help those who cannot read their prescription labels with an easy way to access this critical information. The pharmacy adds a special label to their medicine container. This label is embedded with a microchip, and is programmed with all the printed label data. At home, the patient places the container onto a small hand-held reader, and with the press of a button, is able to listen to the information including patient name, drug name and instructions, pharmacy contact information, warnings and more. The talking reader (available in both English and Spanish) is provided at no-cost by the manufacturer, En-Vision America, Inc. Anyone with a visual or print impairment is eligible for this free service.

“ScripTalk technology offers patients the ability to independently access their prescription labels,” says Anna McClure, Director of Marketing for En-Vision America. “They can listen to the information, or, if needed, acquire the data via Braille or large print on their computer. We are so excited to work with innovative pharmacies across the country that are providing accessible prescriptions to their patients. We hear stories all the time of terrible mix-ups and mistakes that people make because they can’t read their label information. Our goal is to ensure this doesn’t happen.”
