Device to help visually impaired people order in restaurants

About the solution

"We believe restaurant menus should be able to speak to guests: tell them what’s for dinner, what beverages are available, and what’s for dessert and speak in the guest’s preferred language! No more squinting in dim light or turning page after page of complex printed menus", says the company's website.

The device has a variety of buttons, each with braille markings, denote the different categories of food (starters, main course, appetizers, drinks, etc). Upon being pushed each button will list out loud the different dishes available as well as the cost.

Menus That Talk™ come in a variety of languages, the device itself is electronic and interactive, has the dimensions of a DVD box, and it is equipped with braille buttons.

The menus have now gone digital and have a function that allows guests to order from their menus in a variety of languages. The order is then relayed electronically to the kitchen and printed in English. This function is useful not only in restaurants but also for healthcare, and has already been adopted by the south Miami hospital. Menus That Talk are also equipped with an audio handset that is connected to the main device. This was thought of to enable diners who are hard of hearing.
