We see labels on most products we consume and on items we purchase. The amount of information contained in a label is often dictated by the amount of space that is available. If it doesn’t have information, most people pull out their cell phone and start searching for additional product information. The print on the label may be tough to read for the visually impaired and they must find someone to help them read the label. Now imagine if those labels had a simple barcode that played audio information about the product you were looking at when scanned with a scanning device like your iPhone. That is the concept behind Soundpaper developed by a company called Labels That Talk.
Founder Ken Berkun and team are preparing to launch their product in just a few months. They have had the opportunity to engage with a number of companies in order to gather feedback. Their approach has been to partner with large companies in vertical niches. Soundpaper promises to create unique shopping experiences.
