Students attending the 2014 Summer Academy for Blind and Visually Impaired learned how to use label and product identifiers during a workshop on July 17. The Summer Academy, hosted by Penn State, is designed to help blind and visually impaired high school students gain the independence they will need as they transition to college. The product identifier, left, scans the bar code on a product and activates a voice recording that describes specifics for the user.
