Best. Barcode. Reader. Ever! Scan UPC / EAN codes and hear the names of over 37 million products! Make your own QR code labels on the Digit-Eyes website and print them on inexpensive address labels. These barcoded labels may contain text that VoiceOver reads aloud or they can be used to record audio on your iPhone or iPad that is played back whenever the bar code is scanned.
Blind? Dyslexic? Having problems reading? Digit-Eyes is for you! With Digit-Eyes, you can
- Record your own labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to print specially coded quick-response (QR) digital code labels, apply one to your calendar or a box of leftovers, scan, and record a message. To listen to the recording, just rescan the label. This is how Nancy keeps track of her appointments; how Jeanette labels her canning and how Randy keeps the fridge clean.
- Make text-based labels. Visit the Digit-Eyes web site to type up to 250 characters per label, print the specially coded quick-response (QR) barcodes on address labels on your local printer and apply them to your file folders or CDs. To listen to the text, scan it with the Digit-Eyes application on any iPhone or iPad. This is how Will’s secretary labels his folders and how Ana snoops through her friends’ CD collection.
- Buy pre-printed washable labels. Sew them into your clothing and record whatever you want to about the garment: color, fabric care or what it should be worn with. Even when the labels have been washed, bleached, sent through the dryer or dry-cleaned, you’ll still be able to scan them with the Digit-Eyes app on your iPhone or iPad and hear what you recorded about the garment. This is how Davey makes sure he is wearing matching clothing and how Elizabeth can easily sort the laundry.
- Use the manufacturer's product code to find out what the item is. Digit-Eyes includes a feature that enables you to identify many groceries, CDs, and other consumer goods by scanning the UPC and EAN codes on the products. Just point the camera of your iPhone, Pad or iPod Touch 5g at a package label, scan the code, and wait for Digit-Eyes to call our database and tell you what the item is. This is how Deborah picks out her yarn, how Kevin finds the beef stew, and how both get ready to record their audio labels.
- Read standard inventory tags in code 39 or code 128 format. This is how Michael knows which printer is which at work and how Ben does the shelf stocking in his store.
- Print labels directly from your iPhone on your Bluetooth-connected printer;
- Create and read QR vCard format business card information and add the content to your contacts. This is how Digital Miracles gets information from customers at conferences and how we share our own contact information;
- Create lists of code that you've scanned; edit them, type additional information and share them with others. This is how Robbie notes what items are getting used up and tells Gary what to buy at the store;
- Use Digit-Eyes with any blue-tooth connected laser scanner, integrated as a single unit. This is how John is able to work at a grocery store reading the shelf tags to find where to stock the product.
Use of the free Digit-Eyes website comes with the product. The website contains extensive tutorial material designed for users of the iPhone and iPad who are not sighted. The product purchase also includes free online support and tutoring.
Digit-Eyes is available in English, Danish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish.
The solution is in your hands.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is totally awesome… Not worth $10 but worth $10,000
I also find it very useful to identify spices… I pondered for weeks and had to label my spices and realized that they already have a barcode on them and I just scanned them and know what is what… Totally awesome… if you have trouble printing labels to years… Just spend a couple dollars and buy some from Digit-Eyes… It isn't worth the prostration I am always very hesitant to spend money on apps… I reluctantly bought this airport $10 and as I say… It's worth $10,000 to me… there is a slight learning curve to learn how to find and scan the barcode… But in a day or two… I am old pro… If you have questions… They are there to answer the telephone… That is a big plus there is some prostration with learning to find the barcodes… But be patient… Work with it… And… As I say… It is worth it's weight in gold… another thing that is pretty cool about the app is when it recognizes the barcode you hit the more information link and in many instances it gives you nutritional data for that particular product… also… Some products will give you cooking instructions also no more six or seven open cans in the fridge that were mistakenly identified last week and never use because I open the sauerkraut when I was looking for the kidney beans… LOL
Practice and Patience Will Pay Off
The first thing I will say concerning the Digit-Eyes app is this; if you are a person easily frustrated and/or unwilling to put effort into challenges, I strongly recommend you avoid this app.
The above comment is not intended to diss digitize it anyway. It’s just that it will take some time and practice to get fairly successful with digitize. I personally find it to be an extremely helpful option because I live alone and I got, frankly, tired of accidentally adding sauerkraut to my chili when I think I’m adding tomatoes. In short, I find digit-eyes an extremely useful and usable app!
Best of the barcode scanners
While their are several barcode scanners available, this one is the simplest to use without sighted assistence. Right away it recognizes a lot of the things in the average kitchen. Figuring out where exactly the barcode is on items to scan them in the first place is the hardest part but does get easier with practice/experience. The more advanced functions of the app are optional, but it only gets more and more useful the more you dive in. Definetly read the website's tips to get all the use out of it.
