ScanTELL allows visually impaired and reading disabled persons to independently identify bar coded retail and personal items.
ScanTELL identifies and speaks the names of bar-coded products, thus allowing people who are visually impaired or have reading problems to easily and accurately identify retail products and personal items in their homes with no assistance from others.
Bar code labels on work, personal, or retail items are input via a bar code scanner. The items are then located in a cross-referenced, relational database. The description of each successfully identified item is output using voice synthesizer software and hardware.
