Lions donate scanner to resident in need

The Langhorne Lions recently donated a Talking Bar Code Scanner to a local resident, Beverly Ronsiville, who is blind. The En Vision America i.d. mate Quest® is a portable “all-in-one” scanner that aids visually- or print-impaired individuals with the identification of items via the product’s bar code or UPC. Using text-to-speech and digital voice recording technologies, it allows users to access an on-board database of product descriptions, along with a tailored set of recorded messages.

With i.d. mate Quest®, the user can quickly add additional voice recorded information to existing products or to items not found in the database. Additional bar code labels are available to label any product or item that does not already have a bar code. When presented with the bar code scanner, Ms. Ronsiville said, “Now I can go shopping on my own!”

Pictured are Lions Harry Watkins (left) and Don Bader with Beverly.
