The easy way to make printed material accessible
The need for accessible pharmaceutical labels and related information is a growing concern and one that can benefit from advances in technology. Voiceye™ encoding software provides a unique answer to the question: "How can we make vital prescription information accessible to consumers with visual impairments?"
What is Voiceye™?
Voiceye is a powerful encoding software product that creates a dense, 2-d code containing up to two A4 pages of text within the code itself. A free iOS or Android app allows consumers to scan the code and then:
Voiceye™ software has been in use in South Korea for years, and is that government's standard for accessibility. Voiceye™ codes can be found on everything from Supreme Court documents to bank statements, to utility bills, prescriptions, and consumer goods. It's a proven technology that is now available to consumers in the US.
How does Voiceye™ differ from other solutions?
Unlike other code systems, Voiceye™ has the capacity to store significant amounts of text, including all pharmacy label data plus additional drug or device information. In addition, Voiceye™ does not require time-consuming recording of label information at the pharmacy. Most importantly, Voiceye™ codes can be integrated into the pharmacy's printing process as an integrated part of the standard label, and can be reliably scanned from the prescription container. Finally, Voiceye™ allows users to self-determine their preferred method of accessing the information, whether it is braille, large print, voiced text (audible or privately, through standard phone earbuds), or translated language.
How does Voiceye™ work for pharmacies?
Voiceye™ can be seamlessly integrated within a pharmacy's existing prescription label creation process. The encoding software is programmatically incorporated into the workflow, and creates the unique code containing all text determined by the pharmacy's label template. The label is printed containing both text and Voiceye™ code, and applied to the container as usual. This integration is crucial to quality control and patient safety, since there is no chance of applying a code to the wrong prescription.
In addition, Voiceye™ codes can be created separately on a variety of media which will adhere to materials such as cloth bags, vials or blister packs. A small Zebra or Epson label printer with at least 350 dpi resolution will provide a cost-effective and easily scan-able label that can add accessibility to any product. Supplemental material (drug manufacturer inserts, etc.) can also contain its own Voiceye™ codes, making the material accessible in the same way for end users.
Now there's no need to spend valuable pharmacist time recording label information. Let your pharmacy staff concentrate on patient consultation; the Voiceye™ codes can provide the accessibility your customers need, with no addition to your existing workflows.
The incremental cost of Voiceye™ to a pharmacy is insignificant; the value of Voiceye™ to a pharmacy's customers is priceless.
How does Voiceye™ work for consumers?
Users find Voiceye™ incredibly easy, powerful and intuitive. They download the free Voiceye™ app from the App Store or Google Play, and then scan the code using their smartphone, iPod or iPad. The text contained in the code is then available on the device and they can choose their method of access: voice, large print/high contrast, braille, or translated language.
The scanned information is retained in the device history for easy access later, and can be shared through email, MMS, Facebook or Twitter with caregivers, family members, and medical staff.
Voiceye™ codes on pharmaceutical labels mean that consumers no longer need to rely on specialized "readers" that aren't readily available at work, in a restaurant, or while traveling. In addition, consumers retain privacy and achieve independence with their confidential health information. Voiceye™ is a truly empowering technology that everyone can use and benefit from.
