Hi all, some time ago I wrote an application for MS Word, which would produce a printed CD label using Avery CD labels, with barcodes on them which could be read by barcode readers such as the IDMate. The idea was that it would provide a CD labeling system which could be useful to both blind and sighted users, and for the blind user, no knowledge of braille was necessary. In developing it, I exchanged a number of emails with the company who sells IDMate. I'm reasonably sure in our discussions, one of the things they mentioned to me is that even back then, they sold pre-printed clothing labels, with barcodes on them, which were washable. So, if you have any barcode reader already, you may want to check with the company who produces the IDMate (sorry I can't recall their name) before buying an I-phone and this app, just to have your clothes identified. ________________________________ Chip From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lynn Evans Sent: Friday, August 20, 2010 1:54 PM To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tabi] Fw: [Tektalkdiscussion] Digital Miracle now has washable labels FYI ----- Original Message ----- From: Bob Acosta <mailto:boacosta@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: Bob Acosta <mailto:boacosta@xxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, August 20, 2010 10:55 AM Subject: [Tektalkdiscussion] Digital Miracle now has washable labels Dallas, Texas August 19, 2010 -- Digital Miracles, L. L. C., announced today that washable audio labels are now available for sale on its website. The labels are read by the Digit-Eyes app for the iPhone and enable people without vision to permanently label clothing and to record detailed information about the garment that is played back when they scan the label again with the app on their iPhone. The company announced that it also now offers pre-printed audio labels as a convenience for customers who don't have access to a printer or who just prefer that someone else do the printing. "Our customers let us know that identifying clothing is one of their most important labeling needs," reports Nancy Miracle, President. "With the introduction of our soft, washable, bleachable and dryable labels, laundry becomes a snap and confusion in the closet a thing of the past. A number of our customers also told us that they don't have access to a printer or simply prefer the convenience of buying pre-printed labels. Now, we have both types of labels available for sale." The standard self-adhesive QR (Quick Response) Digit-Eyes barcode labels are perfect for temporary labels, or labeling items that will stay dry such as folders, CDs, and containers. The sturdy washable QR Digit-Eyes barcode labels were specifically created for garments and can be permanently attached to clothing. "I've been waiting for these, too," says Davey Hulse, VP of Marketing. "Ever since I heard about the Digit-Eyes concept and got my iPhone, I've been chomping at the bit to get these labels figured out. I can't wait to grab my iPhone and my clothes and ask my wife to help me record audio notes about them. No more chasing around in the morning, asking: 'Does this shirt go with these pants?' From now on it's going to be really cool to be independent!" More information: www.digit-eyes.com <http://www.digit-eyes.com/> . About Digit-Eyes: Digit-Eyes is a project of Digital Miracles, L.L.C.
