CVS/pharmacy now offers visually impaired patients 'talking' Rx labels through CVS.com

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy is now providing ScripTalk talking prescription labels for prescriptions ordered for home delivery through its online pharmacy, the company has announced.

The ScripTalk labels provide a safe and convenient way to access information on prescription labels for individuals who cannot read standard print. The ScripTalk labels are free to CVS.com pharmacy customers who are blind or visually impaired. Customers also can obtain a free ScripTalk reader from Envision America that will enable them to listen to the information on the ScripTalk label.

"We are pleased to offer the ScripTalk service to our online pharmacy customers who are visually impaired," stated Josh Flum, SVP retail pharmacy at CVS Caremark. "Enhancing access to important information about prescriptions is in keeping with our purpose of helping people on their path to better health."

Tuesday’s announcement is the result of collaboration between CVS/pharmacy, the American Foundation for the Blind, American Council of the Blind and California Council of the Blind.
