Phone Guide to help You With a Disability

DISABILITY FEATURES ON TELEPHONES

clear displayTelephones can be fiddly and tricky to operate for anyone, but if you are someone with an impairment then these essential communications devices can be a struggle. However, the major manufacturers, and in particular, BT, have thought about this and come up with features to try to make telephone operation use more accessible to all. Here are a few of the features that are well worth looking at should you have such an impairment - be it Hearing, Speech & language, Dexterity, Sight, Mobility or simply Understanding & Using technology.

INDUCTIVE COUPLER

BIG BUTTONS

hearingFor people with either a visual impairment or with dexterity issues large clear and easy to use buttons are a great relief.

DISPLAY CLARITY

SPEAKER PHONE

hearingMany corded or cordless phones come with a built in speaker phone which removes the necessity to hold the handset at all times as this can be tiring for some people.

We recommend the BT Converse 2300 and the BT Big Button 4500 though there are many others with a range of features - feel free to call us on 0800 652 4949 for more information on how our phones can help you with your disability.
