Talking Prescription Labels Available to Many More Canadians

Thanks to a partnership between Canadian company Empire and En-Vision America, many more blind & visually impaired Canadians will have access to talking prescription labels. En-Vision America’s ScriptTalk system allows pharmacists to embed the prescription instructions, such as dosage etc, into a small RFID chip in the printed label. These instructions can then be read aloud using either an app on your smart phone or a hardware scanner device both of which are free.

The ScripTalk labelling service will be available in over 420 stores nationwide including:

  • Lawtons Drugs
  • Sobeys
  • Safeway
  • Thrifty Foods
  • Foodland
  • IGA (western Canada)
  • FreshCo
