En-Vision America To Launch ScripTalk iOS App in Spring 2018

Posted by: En-Vision America

Date: 2/8/2018

En-Vision America, the assistive tech company behind the id mate talking barcode scanner and accessible prescription labels, has spent the last year developing an iOS app for its ScripTalk product since Apple made NFC available in iOS 11. Once the ScripTalk app is downloaded and opened, Apple iPhone users will be able to use their phone as an audible prescription reader. The user simply places a prescription container with a special ScripTalk label on the phone and the app will read all of the information on the printed label.

The ScripTalk app works with ScripTalk prescription labels, which utilize RFID technology (radio frequency identification) and NFC (near-field communication) to store and transmit all of the information on a printed medication label. These special labels can be obtained from a participating pharmacy, free of charge.

Anyone who would like talking prescription labels can request them from a participating pharmacy. To find a pharmacy in your area: or call En-Vision America for assistance in getting free talking prescription labels, 1-800-890-1180. Large print and Braille labels are also available.

The ScripTalk iOS app is scheduled to be released in April 2018. The app will work with iOS 11 and above. An Android version is available.
