Bentonville, Ark. -- Walmart is piloting a test program with En-Vision America to offer ScripTalk, a talking prescription system that provides those who cannot read standard print a safe and easy way to access the information on their prescriptions. ScripTalk is currently being offered to customers with visual impairments across the country through Walmart Mail Order and in three Walmart test stores. The program is free to Walmart pharmacy customers who are blind or visually impaired.
A prescription provided with ScripTalk has an electronic chip embedded in the standard print label. To hear the information on the chip, the customer simply places the prescription container on the ScripTalk device and presses the button.
