Palmetto Tech Company Helps Visually Impaired Read Drug Labels

PALMETTO, Fla. (FOX 13) — A family-owned company in Palmetto, Florida is using technology to make products to help the blind live more independently.

En-Vision America was born in 1996 when David B. Raistrick created a way to barcode playing cards for his visually impaired uncles.

“He thought there has to be a better way to do this and he developed a little program on a laptop,” the company’s Sales Director, Amanda Tolson said.
