Digit-Eyes Audio Scanner and Labeler: Information on 25 Million Products in the Palm of Your Hand
In this podcast AnonyMouse gives us a walk-through and demonstration of Digit-Eyes Audio Scanner and Labeler, an iOS app that enables people without vision to scan UPC / EAN codes and hear the names of over 25 million products. In many cases the app can also provide additional information on these products, such as storage instructions, complete list of ingredients, and nutritional information. , Digit-Eyes use an automated system that will try to locate information on new and missing barcodes, meaning that thousands of items are added to the product database each day. So, if you scan a product and find it is not listed in their database, there is a strong possibility that it will be added within 24-48 hours.
Users can also make their own barcode labels on the Digit-Eyes website and print them on address labels. These barcodes may contain text that VoiceOver reads aloud or they can be used to record audio on your iPhone or iPad that is played back whenever the bar code is scanned.
