Some health management applications and devices include functionality to help remind users to take their pills. However, such reminders often lack relevant detail, such as name and dosage of the specific medication. Further, no mechanisms exist for caregivers to access health-related information of consenting users, e.g., for children to access information of elderly parents, or to remind them of health-related tasks. This disclosure describes techniques that enable a user to receive health-related reminders based on photos of their medication. The notifications can use the voice of their preferred caregivers, such as their adult children. Suitable computer vision and machine learning techniques are utilized to generate such notifications. The application via which reminders are delivered is made available in many languages and with appropriate permissions, can automatically generate voice reminders in the voice of caregivers.
