Digit-Eyes: Identify and Organize Your World

Why Digit-Eyes?
Digit-Eyes is the clear choice when compared to conventional assistive devices:
  • Digit-Eyes provides unparalleled functionality -- scanning and labeling as well as UPC/EAN reading and voicing.  Other assistive devices are limited to a single function, requiring users who want to do both labeling and scanning to carry several different devices with them.
  • Digit-Eyes fits the budget. Digit-Eyes runs on the lowest-level iPhones and iPods. These are available at Walmart and other stores for just $99 or less. The Digit-Eyes software is priced at just $9.99*, offering unparalleled functionality for about the price of a meal out.  Other assistive devices start at $150 and can cost as much as $1,200 for single-purpose units.
  • Digit-Eyes has no ongoing cost. The Digit-Eyes product databases are continuously updated and all information is available for free. Other assistive technology products charge $50 or $100 per year for data updates.
  • Digit-Eyes travels light. All it takes is your iPhone, iPod or iPad; you carry no additional hardware. The devices are ergonomically well designed and fit tidily in your pocket. Other assistive devices are large, obtrusive, or awkward to hold.
  • Digit-Eyes relies on supplies that are easy to find and modestly priced. It uses off-the-shelf Avery compatible labels that cost a penny or two each and which can be found wherever office supplies are sold. Other assistive devices require expensive supplies that have to be ordered from special sources.
  • Digit-Eyes goes where you go.  Digit-Eyes takes advantage of the data transmission capabilities of the iPhone and iPod, traveling wherever users go, while other assistive devices physically tether users to their computers.
  • Digit-Eyes takes a licking. The iPhone, iPod and iPad are robust hardware platforms that stand up well to everyday environmental stress, such as being jostled or dropped. Other assistive devices are physically fragile.
  • Digit-Eyes helps users identify packaged goods. It automatically scans for UPC and EAN codes. When a manufacturer code is detected, it automatically connects to the Digit-Eyes database system, retrieves the name of the product, and announces it to you. Other assistive devices require the user to know what the item being labeled is and to make their own recordings.
  • Digit-Eyes stores up to 1,000 hours of voice labels and uses less than half the storage capacity of the 15Gb iPhone. Got a phone with more capacity? 1,000 hours of labels take about 12% of the storage space on the 64Gb iPhone. Other assistive devices have recording capacities that max out at 50 to 70 hours.
  • Digit-Eyes has no practical limit to the number of labels that you can make.   Many other labeling systems limit the user to 500 or 700 labels.
  • Digit-Eyes labels scan well. They can easily be found by touch; the bar codes are dependably aligned with the edges of the labels; and the bar code can be scanned from all four directions and, unlike conventional systems, is insensitive to skew.
  • Digit-Eyes is secure.  Audio labels are automatically backed up each time your phone is synched and backed up.  Other assistive devices can be lost and the digital content is irrevocably lost with them.
  • Digit-Eyes requires no physical contact with the bar code. Scan distances vary with the size of the label. Labels 2 cm across call for a relatively close scan while labels 4 inches (10 cm) square can be scanned from a distance of roughly 4 feet (120 cm). Other assistive devices require the user to physically touch the item being identified.
  • Digit-Eyes delivers a high capture rate when used to acquire manufacturer-applied UPC codes, as it scans the entire surface of the package. Codes are recognized in any orientation and the user is not required to "fit" the code into a visual box that they cannot see. This is an improvement over current assistive devices, whose users report difficulties in locating the bar codes and aligning the device for reading.
  • Digit-Eyes filters out background noise. Users of other assistive devices that record sound files report problems with extraneous noise. This is not an issue with the iPhone, iPod and iPad.
  • Digit-Eyes labels stay crisp over time. Users of Braille labeling systems report that loss of information due to flattening of the dots is a major irritation and that loss of labels due to adhesive problems are common. Avery labels are designed to stick (and stay stuck) for 10 years of normal use.
  • Digit-Eyes labels are available in washable format, , simplifying everyday tasks such as picking the right clothes from the closet or doing the laundry.   The labels produced by other assistive systems are not washable.
*$9.99 price includes audio label recording option, UPC/EAN reader, code 3-of-9, (inventory tags) code 2-of-5 (supermarket shelf tags) and code 128 inventory tag readers. Pricing for the UPC/EAN reader alone is $5.99.
