CVS Offers Talking Labels for Online Prescriptions

CVS is now offering talking prescription labels, dubbed ScripTalk, for prescriptions ordered online for home delivery to the blind or visually impaired. Customers can also get a free ScripTalk reader from Envision America that will let them listen to the information on the labels. CVS collaborated with the American Foundation for the Blind, American Council of the Blind and California Council of the Blind to make these labels possible.
