The Best Amplified Phones for the Deaf & Hard Of Hearing
8 CommentsMonday, 29 October 2018
Your phone is your main link to your family and loved ones, so when it rings, you need to be able to take notice and make contact. For the hearing impaired, this can be difficult, as standard ringer and receiver volumes are often too low and are not compatible for use with hearing aids. To solve this problem, Health and Care offers a number of intuitive Amplified Telephones and Amplified Mobile Phones, built with extra-loud ringtones, clear and easy-to-hear receivers, as well as a number of other features to make them as accessible and simple to use for just about anyone.
