Talking Pill Reminder

Prescription medications play an essential role to many individuals’ overall wellbeing.  Further, the information of prescriptions is also critical, thus all contents should be made as accessible as possible to all consumers.  Walgreens, the nation’s largest drugstore chain, acknowledges this and aims to make their medications as accessible as possible.  To do so, the company collaborated with The American Council of the Blind (ACB) and its affiliates in California and Illinois with the mission to make medications more accessible to the visually impaired.

As a result, Walgreens launched a nationwide program offering talking prescription devices which attach to the majority of prescription bottles, to its customers with visual impairments.  Walgreens is the first pharmacy to offer the exclusive device, the “Talking Pill Reminder,” which is now available at its retail locations nationwide.  The Talking Pill Reminder will be available free of charge to its pharmacy customers who are blind or visually impaired; it is also available for purchase in its stores or online for $9.99.

The Talking Pill Reminder fits most standard pill vials and includes:

  • Audible beep
  • 30-second recording function
  • Adjustable alarm interval between doses
  • Voice prompts for assistance
  • 3 AG13 cell batteries
  • 3 adhesive stickers
