Talking Prescription LabelsBy Closing the Gap, Vol. 20, No. 1, p. 8
Publication Date: April/May 2001
Article describing Aloud, which is a voice output medication label reader from Rx Partners. Aloud is a three-inch-tall device that plays a pharmacy-recorded audio message connected to a medication container. The message identifies the contents of the bottle, and tells the user how to use the medication accordingly. Aloud is re-usable, and works through the use of a digital recording chip stored in a small plastic base attached to the prescription container. The message pertaining to the medication is recorded beforehand by the pharmacy once the prescription is filled. The user can then play back the message via the Aloud replay unit. Aloud can be used by people who are blind or have low vision, as well as people who have cognitive disabilities.
