Accessible Prescription Label Program Now Free for Americans with Vision
Loss

 En-Vision America has announced a new program to aid the blind and visually
impaired in obtaining
accessible prescriptions using ScripTalk Station.

ScripTalk Station uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) and
text-to-speech (TTS) technologies
to provide information access to those who cannot read their prescription
labels.
Under the Pharmacy Freedom Program, eligible individuals may obtain a free
ScripTalk
Station patient reader. Participating pharmacies attach to each prescription
a small
RFID label that contains all printed information. The ScripTalk Station
reads this
information aloud to the patient. This system provides a safe, private, and
independent
way for the blind and visually impaired to manage their medication regimen,
and also
helps pharmacies comply with ADA regulations in serving their patients.
The ScripTalk Station system is used nationwide by the Veteran's
Administration,
and is currently the only product on the market to provide full label
information
in a manner that meets ADA, FDCA, and HIPAA regulations.

Interested individuals may contact En-Vision America to get a free reader
and provide
pharmacy details. Pharmacies concerned with meeting the needs of their
special needs
patients may also contact the company for more information about the
program.
