How do I use labels to find items?

There are many different ways that you can label items to make them easier to identify.

  • Audio labelling can be used to record short or long messages on each label, making it perfect for labelling items such as music and film collections, frozen food and items in your kitchen cupboards. For creating personalised audio labels the RNIB PenFriend audio labeller is a low cost solution.
  • Braille or Moon labels can be produced using a wide variety of methods and materials.
  • Clear print labels can be created using thick nibbed pens on self-adhesive labels or clean white paper.
  • Tactile labels can be produced using a variety of products and help you to identify individual items by touch.
