These are very small notification notes to enable the visually impaired person to get information for the products. Firstly, we used the Braille Alphabet behind our label. We give information about the product so they can get the information by their sighted fingertips. The product information was written with the latin letters in front side of the label and just under, it took place respectively the chip of data matrix application and NFC Smart Label System. NCF system enables the information to listen vocally via smart phones and it is required that this program must be downloaded to the mobile phone in order to access to the information vocally.

İn nearly three years we have given seminar at Marmara University. As I said before, this story began with the visually impaired person for me. Nearly 7-8 month later, during we made a meeting with our teacher, this issue came to the fore and I learned that she had the same project. I so offered that we shall introduce this project together. And we came together and it was very nice.
