At-home COVID tests designed for people with vision loss are now available for order. The tests connect to an app by Bluetooth that will speak the test instructions and results. The app can be downloaded from either the Apple or Google Play store.
Individuals may order a set of accessible COVID antigen tests while supplies last. To order, visit https://special.usps.com/testkits/accessible or call 1-800-232-0233.
Because supplies are limited, please only order these tests if you have no other way to access standard instructions or results. Some examples of ways to receive assistance with standard COVID tests:
Ask a trusted friend, family member, or caregiver, either in person or through a video platform.
Use a virtual assistant service such as AIRA https://aira.io or Be My Eyes www.bemyeyes.com.
In addition, trained staff at the Disability Information and Access Line (DIAL) can assist with ordering tests and providing instructions. Call 1-888-677-1199, Monday – Friday, from 8 am to 7 pm (CDT), or e-mail DIAL@usaginganddisability.org.
