With any of the following electronic labeling systems, we can easily use the system’s labels to record and re-record audio messages. Note that each system has its own proprietary labels, and these labels are not interchangeable.
After creating a recording on a label, just affix it to the desired object. Then, use the device to access the audio recording stored on that label. Each of the devices below is battery-powered, and each has a built-in speaker.
This tool offers a built-in headphone jack in addition to the speakers in the wand, and the device can store up to 250 hours of audio (contained in multiple labels). Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library’s Reizen Talking Label Wand entry.
PENfriend labels can record up to 60 minutes of audio. Thus, in addition to labeling medicine, we can use these labels to store music, audiobooks, etc. Like the Reizen Talking Label Wand, the PENfriend 3 pen can support up to 250 hours of playback. Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library’s PENfriend 3 Voice Labeling System entry.
The VOXCOM III 100 Voice Labeling System includes 100 cards on which we can record 10-second messages. Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library’s VOXCOM III 100 Voice Labeling System entry.
With WayAround, you do not need a special device to record or play your WayAroud labels. Instead, you access that information via your own iOS or Android SmartPhone (or tablet). Find out more in the Bridges Resource Library’s WayAround Labeling System entry.
