Rite Aid (valid: 6/16 Sunday - 6/22 Saturday)

Please do not record this flyer if you do not have it reserved on your personal link or have contacted accessnews@societyfortheblind.org!

  1. If you reserve this flyer, please record it in the next 4 hours.

  2. Make sure that you are recording the flyer with the right dates.

    Basically, if both dates of the flyer you are about to read are before the date of recording, then please stop and just reach out to us. For example, if today’s date is 8/13 then a flyer that is valid from 8/6 to 8/12 is not relevant anymore.

If you have any questions at any time while reading the instructions below, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

1. How to read this ad?


Step 1. Record a header (1 recording)

One audio recording with the following information:

  1. (Required) Store name
  2. (Required) Dates the specials are valid
  3. (Required) Date of recording

Sample text:
Rite Aid. Specials are valid from June 16th, Sunday to June 22nd, Saturday. Recorded on June 16th.



Step 2. Record the flyer page by page (1 recording per page)

A recording for a page will include the following:

  1. Page number
    e.g., “Page 7.”

  2. Page title or, if there’s none, a short summary of items on the page
    e.g., “personal care”, “deals of the week”, “back to school

    Sometimes a single page has a lot of items, so the summary would be overly long. In this case, please split the page and record them as 2 separate pages. This would also cut the original summary in half. You can even split a large page into 3 or more if needed.

  3. Items listed on the page

    See section 2. How to read the items below.

  4. End of page.

TIPS

Repeat the above steps for each page. For example, if the flyer has 16 pages then you should end up with 17 recordings (1 recording for each page plus the header recording in Step 1 above).

The flyer itself is on this link. When asked to select a store, please choose

  • 4830 J Street, Sacramento, CA at ZIP code 95819.


Step 3. Upload recordings

Upload your recordings to this online folder.

Please make sure that the name of each recording starts with the page number! In fact, you can simply name each file with its page number (e.g., 01, 02)
