ScripTalk Talking Labels and Prescription Reader

Meeting the Needs of Customers Who are Blind, Visually or Print Impaired

As the number of people who are elderly, visually and print impaired continues to rise across the United States, so too is the demand for accessible prescriptions. In 2012, the FDA Safety and Innovation Act provided a list of best practices for pharmacies to implement to ensure that patients would have safe, private, independent, reliable, and consistent access to prescription label information as stated in the ADA. ScriptAbility’s prescription labeling system helps you meet all of those needs.

ScripTalk Audible Prescription Drug Labels

ScriptAbility has developed ScripTalk talking labels, a solution for audible pharmacy labeling. ScripTalk labels are attached to a prescription bottle and programmed with all of the printed label information. At home, the patient places the medication container on a prescription reader unit and hears the label read aloud with a press of a button. A ScripTalk app can be substituted as a prescription reader if the patient uses a smartphone with RFID capability.
