The Talking Pill Reminder can be recorded to speak the information on the customer’s prescription medication label, and also has an audible alarm to remind patients when to take a medication. The devices are available in Walgreens drugstores for purchase for a retail price of $9.99. The way this device works is it will attach to prescription containers.
Collaboration between Walgreens, The American Council of the Blind (ACB) and the ACB affiliates in California and Illinois helped create the Talking Pill Reminder. It is essential that all patients have adequate access to prescription information specially patients who are visually impaired.
