When was the last time you picked up a box of cake mix, or a piece of business mail, or a pill bottle and you thought, "I need to know the directions, or the return address, or the right dose, and I can't read the small print on this to find out. I wish this thing would just talk to me and tell me what I need to know. It would be so simple."
What if that box, or letter, or bottle could talk to you? What if anything in your house with printed information on it had a special feature that could speak that information to you, so you could hear it and not struggle to read it? You can actually add that special feature yourself with something called an audio label. Well, that sounds great, right but, what is an audio label? It's not something many of us are familiar with.
A label, it's a small piece of paper, fabric, plastic, or similar material attached to an object and gives information about it. An audio label is exactly that.
