Talking bar code reader aids visually impaired people

i.d. mate Galaxy

i.d. mate Galaxy® is a portable "all-in-one" talking bar code reader that aids visually impaired individuals with the identification of items via the product's bar code or UPC.

Using text-to-speech and digital voice recording technologies, it allows users to access an on-board database of product descriptions, along with a tailored set of recorded voice messages.

With i.d. mate Galaxy®, the user can quickly add additional voice recorded information to existing products or to items not found in the database. Additional bar code labels are available to label any product or item that does not already have a bar code. Adhesive, tag, and clothing labels can be placed on nearly anything. Simply scan the bar code and add a voice recording.

Cory Ballard, Assistive Technology Specialist, in Vision Forward’s TEC, demonstrates the latest generation of portable talking bar code scanners provided by En-Vision America.
