Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Talking Prescription Labels Now Available From Midwestern Pharmacy Chain

Through a partnership between En-Vision America and Hy-Vee, Inc., free talking prescription labels can now be accessed in 26 languages by patients who have visual or print impairments in Hy-Vee’s more than 275 pharmacy locations in eight Midwestern states. En-Vision America’s ScripTalk talking label system makes it possible for  pharmacists to program and put a small electronic tag on prescription packaging, usually on the bottom of the bottle. The tag includes all the information that would be on a prescription label. Customers will use a ScripTalk reader, provided at no cost to them, or the free ScripTalk Mobile App to have all the information read aloud. For more details, read the announcement from HY-Vee: Hy-Vee Pharmacies Now Offer Talking Prescription Labels in 26 Languages to Assist Visually- and Print-Impaired Patients. Editor’s Note: This offering is similar to the CVS “Spoken Rx,” announced in the December 17, 2021 RDPFS Resources for Partners Bulletin.
