A digital voice labeller that plays a recorded auditory message to identify an object. The message plays when the user touches the end of the device to the supplied self-adhesive scannable labels. The Pen Friend may assist people with a vision impairment to identify items including clothes, food and medication. Each label can be rerecorded using your own voice. The labeller features high contrast yellow buttons on a black background.
