The world that we live in today has so many languages that we speak throughout. Out of more than the six thousand languages that are spoken around the world, the most common is the English language. But there are people who do not understand it. When we speak of medications, the language barrier becomes riskier. If consumers are not able to understand the warning labels on the medicines, it might prove fatal to life. So it seems important that there be a tool or an application that would help them recognize and decode the warnings and/ or the instructions that are printed the medication pill containers. This tool will prove very useful for patients across the world and also people who consume any kind of medication without understanding the procedures/ risks that are specific to those medications.
