ACCESSIBLE WORLD TEK TALK PRESENTS A DISCUSSION AND DEMONSTRATION OF TOUCH MEMO, AUG. 29, 2011 NEWSWIRE: VisionCue Introduces Touch Memo New digital voice labeler expands VisionCue's line-up of portable and affordable tools for the visually impaired PORTLAND, Oregon May 4, 2011 VisionCue today announced that it has been appointed as the exclusive distributor of the new Touch Memo, a digital voice labeler for the blind and visually impaired, in the U.S. and Canada. Touch Memo is described as a "Daily Living Product" by VisionCue because of its numerous applications in the home and workplace. The Touch Memo allows users to record personal descriptions of items such as groceries, cosmetics, medicines, files, keys, books, CDs, tools, and other important items for later playback. Lightweight and ergonomic, the Touch Memo is used together with specialty labels that are placed on objects. The labels have a unique identification that the Touch Memo uses to reference a vocal "tag" associated with that object. For instance, a user may place a label on a pill bottle and records the vocal tag, "Vitamin C, take 2 pills a day." Later, to play back that vocal tag, just "touch" the label with the Touch Memo to hear the prerecorded "memo". "We've been very pleased with the response we have already received from customers. As soon as they pick up the Touch Memo for the first time, they think of dozens of ways this product can help them at home or work," said Larry Lake, president of VisionCue. The digital labeler is easy to use with only three operating buttons to learn. Special "tactile" labels help users quickly find the label for reading with the Touch Memo sensor. "Washable" labels are designed for clothing. All recorded labels may be backed up on a computer using the USB cable provided. Although a computer is not necessary to use the Touch Memo.
