1. Voice Guide
At history and art museums, there are some that offer voice guide devices which work by selecting a code, but they are not easy to use. With a speaking pen and a floor map printed with dot codes, a system where voice guidance would make it easy to choose the corresponding exhibit or art piece could be realized.

2. Talking Menu
With the menu from a restaurant and the speaking pen, a new system is introduced where you can hear information about all of the dishes from the pen. It can be used for many languages and it is very useful for foreign customers.

3. Travel Guide
When traveling abroad, books with common phrases are available, but when the pronunciation is incorrect, it can be hard to understand. As long as you use a book that works with the speaking pen, you will always get the right pronunciation.

4. Support for Handicapped People
For the Blind, braille is necessary to read sentences, but if they were able to hear it, it would be easy to understand. By combining braille with dot codes, a more convenient tool could be realized. It would be the most effective if braille that describes where the dot codes are is used in combination with the codes. Rather than using only braille, texts can be made much more compact.

5. Authentication
In order to prevent illegal copies, the originals could have codes printed on them to assist in identifying authenticity, Dot codes are not visible to the naked eye, so even if the appearance is the same, by using this technique, one touch of the pen would tell you if it was real or not. It is also possible to print it onto clothes tags.
