The Scan And Say is a talking barcode scanner designed for those with visual impairments who require additional help identifying certain items such as medications and packaged foods. The scanner allows a sight-impaired person to scan a barcoded item and hear the product's description over a PC computer's speakers. One can also produce a shopping list of items (via scanning) that can be used by a sighted person at the grocery store.
The device is operated only using a keyboard. This allows anyone to be able to scan a product's barcode without needing to see where the barcode is located.
The Scan and Say database contains approximately 500,000 products. New products can be added, and descriptions of each item are able to be altered.
POWER: USB attachment.
COMPATIBILITY: PC computers only.
WARRANTY/GUARANTEE: As stated by the manufacturer.
