    Between KNFB Reader and the other apps and smartphone services we have mentioned in these guides, it’s possible to identify nearly anything you need to know about or read. One possible exception is your prescription bottles.

    You can use FaceTime, Skype, or Be My Eyes to get sighted help identifying your various medicines and reviewing the dosage schedule, side effects, and other information, but none of the automatic apps will do this. Even the KNFB Reader can only occasionally turn the printed label on a small, highly curved pill bottle into readable text.

    There are a variety of solutions for prescription access, each with advantages and disadvantages for each. Along with the information included in this guide, refer to Products and Devices to Help You Identify Your Medications on VisionAware for further discussion.
