Here is a web site that you might want to share with your members.

Welcome to directions for me TM , your one stop source for accessible packaging 
information. Directions provides the information that's on consumer packages

or labels in a simple online format for anyone who has trouble reading the 
small print including people who are blind or visually impaired. 


This site provides a consistent, quality source of complete packaging 
information for everything from preparation or cooking instructions to 

lists to Nutrition and Drug Facts labels for many common grocery, health and 
beauty and general merchandise products. In addition, it also provides, 

life-saving, allergy and drug interaction warnings. 


For those watching their carbohydrates (carbs), fat, sodium or cholesterol 
intake, Directions provides a user-friendly way to get access to this 

Gaining comprehensive access will foster self sufficiency and allow you to lead 
a more healthy and independent life.  


directions for me TM  was designed to be completely accessible with 
text-to-speech screen readersmagnifiers and braille displays as well as 

cell phones. This information is presented in a uniform, easy-to-use format and 
eliminates features that hinder accessibility. 


Regardless of the product or brand, all packaging information is formatted and 
displayed the same way. Users will be able to access this data exactly the

same way, every time and will no longer have to search a variety of sites with 
different formats and varying levels of accessibility. The site remains

current by utilizing a database that is continually added to and updated. 


Horizons is very excited about directions for me TM  and the possibilities it 
holds. We hope that you enjoy the site and find it useful. Please spread the

word about this important service and come back often as we are continually 
updating and improving Directions.
