An update on ScripTalk audible prescription labels

Contenu principal

ScripTalk audible prescription labels enable blind, partially sighted or print-impaired pharmacy patients to hear important prescription label information free of charge.

With ScripTalk, pharmacists can code prescription labels with Radio Frequency Identification technology also known as RFID. Using a small, hand-held, base prescription reader called the ScripTalk Station Reader, you are able to hear important prescription information and instructions read aloud (i.e. an audible label). You can also access talking prescription labels by using En-Vision America’s mobile phone application that is compatible with the coded prescription labels.

If your daily routine includes managing pills, injections, or other medications, ScripTalk can enable you to follow the instructions of your doctor or pharmacist safely and independently. ScripTalk is an accessible way to access the details of your medications, understand the side effects of your medications, and assist you with keeping track of refills.

Script Talk is available over the counter immediately at Sobeys, Lawtons Drugs, Safeway, Foodland, IGA, FreshCo, and Thrifty Foods. In British Columbia, ScripTalk RFID labels are also available within 48 hours (or two business days) at all Shoppers Drug Mart outlets, all Walmart pharmacies and pharmacies operating under the Overwaitea Food Group umbrella which includes Save-On-Foods, Overwaitea Foods, Urban Fare, Price Smart Foods, Price Smart Foods International and Bulkley Valley Wholesale.

To access this service, simply speak with your pharmacist. If your local pharmacy does not yet offer this service, you can connect with En-Vision America, the makers of Script Talk. En-Vision America is urging all pharmacies to create accessible prescription information. Contact Amanda at 1-800-890-1180 or atolson@envisionamerica.com.
