Product Description: 

Digit-Eyes is a barcode reading iOS app designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. The program allows a person to use their iOS device to scan bar codes and hear the names of the items. This can allow individuals with visual or print disabilities to identify items in their pantries or in the stores.

Main Features: 

  • Users can record their own labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to print specially coded quick-response (QR) digital code labels, apply one to a calendar or a box of leftovers, scan, and record a message. To listen to the recording, just rescan the label.
  • Make text-based labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to type up to 250 characters per label, print the specially coded quick-response (QR) barcodes on address labels and apply them to your file folders or CDs. To listen to the text, scan it with the Digit-Eyes application on an iPhone or iPad. 
  • Buy pre-printed washable labels. Sew them into clothing and record information about the garment: color, fabric care or what it should be worn with. Even when the labels have been washed, bleached, sent through the dryer or dry-cleaned, users can still scan them with the Digit-Eyes app and hear what they recorded about the garment.
  • Use the manufacturer's product code to find out what the item is. Digit-Eyes includes a feature that enables users to identify many groceries, CDs, and other consumer goods by scanning the UPC and EAN codes on the products. Just point the camera of your iPhone, Pad or iPod Touch 5g at a package label, scan the code, and wait for Digit-Eyes to call our database and identify what the item is. 
  • Read standard inventory tags in code 39 or code 128 format.
  • Print labels directly from an iPhone on a Bluetooth-connected printer.
  • Create and read QR vCard format business card information and add the content to contacts.
  • Create lists of code that you've scanned; edit them, type additional information and share them with others. 
  • Use Digit-Eyes with any blue-tooth connected laser scanner, integrated as a single unit.
  • Use of the free Digit-Eyes website comes with the product. The website contains extensive tutorial material designed for users of the iPhone and iPad who are not sighted. The product purchase also includes free online support and tutoring.
