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 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.
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 front of the machine which can be moved to turn the machine on and turn up the volume. The ScripTalk Station runs on batteries or can be plugged in to an electrical outlet.
Pharmacist stores all your information on a small electronic tag that fits on any size or shape medication container.
Free App or Free ScripTalk Station reads all your prescription label information out loud.
