[I received the following message from another list about a webinar this coming Saturday, October 16,  to demonstrate the ScripTalk talking prescription
medication label system, and thought it would be of interest to members of the Tech Talk list:

Hi Federation Family & Friends!

ScripTalk!

At Septembers Tec training, we had a discussion on how to distinguish your different medications. We thought we would set up a webinar that would assist
individuals on a way to do this!

On Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 10:00AM eastern. The Computer Science & Technology Division will have a representative from En-Vision America  to tell
us all about ScripTalk!

ScripTalk Talking Labels

If you or a loved one has trouble reading prescription medication labels then ScripTalk is the solution for you. This is a FREE, easy-to-use service available
at thousands of pharmacies throughout the United States and Canada that will read all your medication information out loud.

In the United States alone, the Food and Drug Administration estimates that about 1.3 million people are injured by medication errors each year.  For those
who can’t see to read their medication labels, talking prescription labels can be crucial to ensuring medication safety and adherence.

No ScripTalk users reported experiencing a medication error related to mixing up medications or taking the wrong medication/dosage since using ScripTalk.

HOW IT WORKS

A pharmacist programs a small electronic label with all your prescription information, including drug name, dosage, instructions, warnings, pharmacy information,
doctor name, prescription number, date and more. The tag relies on RFID and text-to-speech technology.

The pharmacist places the tag on your prescription medication and you can use a free mobile ScripTalk App to hear all the information read out loud. Simply
download the App from the App Store or Google Play, click the “scan” button and hold the bottle up to either the front of the screen (iPhones) or back
of the phone case near the camera (Androids).

Alternatively, the patient can use a ScripTalk Station, which is about the size of an old, portable CD player or phone message machine. Simply place the
pill bottle on the machine and press the “Read” button. The two triangle buttons on either side of the oval read button can be used to jump forward or
back through the prescription information. There is small wheel on the right side of the machine which can be moved to turn the machine on and turn up
the volume.

You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations
of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams.
