Re: Looking for a method to quickly determine carbs on packaging of food products

Well nothing is perfect but you can correct it. and then upload it to Envision America. I have had a ID mate for years and would not take nothing for it. this is my second one I updated from the ID mate2 to the quest a few years ago. At some point I might upgrade again but no big hurry as of now the quest works very well. The other thing is KNFB Reader it does very good at reading package stuff. Also TapTapSee does good as well. Then there is the Bespechular but y have to wait for a response here . but I find out it is usually fairly quick. But the ID mate is the deal. Also the pen friend once you have the info you need can use it. But here again nothing like the ID mate!


Thanks,

Strange thing about that, though, is that sometimes it has the wrong titles.
We have Abraxis by Santana, and I think I remember that it called it something else. Pam.

Yeah, those ID Mates are pretty neat. They read all kinds of things, even CD's! I was at a demo once where somebody in the back of the room whipped out a newly released Beatles compilation CD and challenged the demonstrator to read it. The challenge was accepted, but the ID Mate failed the challenge. "But wait!" said the demonstrator. "Let's also demonstrate how the database can be updated." He pressed a few buttons, we watched and waited, he tried the disc again, and bingo, there it was! A very impressive device is that ID Mate.

I somewhat agree with your assessment of the cost of the ID Mate. But a
friend of mine has one. It reads about 4 million products, she says.
And it reads everything, including the list of ingredients. If you find
something that it doesn’t read, you can send the information back to
the company through the ID Mate, and they will research it and make
that information available to other users if they come across that
product. In addition, when I asked, she said that it recognizes other
products such as mouth wash and CD’s.



Also, it can connect with the databases in many grocery stores. It
makes it possible for her to do her own shopping sans sighted
assistance. She says that it is the only stand alone bar code reader.
She finally got one because she has a couple of allergies and kept
buying foods which made her sick. Now she can check on things before she pays for them.

Ugh, $1,299.00? Really? Never freaking mind jeez. For a stupid
barcode scanner? Even a talking one. That is beyond insane.

Excellent, this is exactly what I am looking for. How much is one of
those?

Have you checked out a talking bar code scanner like the ID Mate, which
can read the information on product labels?

There are several ways of determining this kind of information by
searching, but a direct method of scanning packages would be much more
convenient for dealing with many products.

Does a site like Directions For Me (spelling) provide such information?
They include lots of information found on packaging of items they list
and they list a lot of food items.



As far as something that actually scans packaging and provides such
information, I have no idea.

So in addition to my infection, I have been recently diagnosed as Type
II diabetic. Joy freaking joy.



I am looking for either standalone or PC attachable peripheral scanning
devices which can be used to quickly determine carbs on the packaging
of food products. I don't know if something like a barcode scanner can
be used for this purpose and if any such options are accessible.
