Talking prescriptions for the blind made mandatory in the U.S. state of Nevada
Technology has come to the rescue of the blind and visually impaired in the state of Nevada in the United States. A new law, SB 131 which went into effect last month, makes it compulsory for pharmacies to have prescription readers like ScripTalk.
ScripTalk reads aloud the dosage information that’s embedded in a small chip on the bottom of a prescription bottle.
People who have been using it say that its a game changer. Many people put their health at risk by taking medications they are not supposed to when they are not supposed to and this is a big step for the blind community.
