What are Amplified Phones?
Amplified phones, also commonly known as loud telephones are models that are designed specifically for people with hearing difficulties, who are partially deaf or have experienced some form of hearing loss. The key feature of these phones is that they allow you to turn the volume up a lot louder than standard models so that you can hear your phone calls with greater ease and clarity. As there is a lot of crossover with these types of products, they often have features that will suit the elderly in general and the visually impaired.
At PMC Telecom, we have seen the popularity of these phones grow significantly in the last couple of decades as the technology utilised by them has improved.
If you are still unsure whether an amplified phone would be right for you, consider the following benefits of using them.
Benefits of Amplified Phones
Although the features and facilities offered by individual amplified phones will be different from model to model and even manufacturer to manufacturer. Many of the key benefits of using these kinds of phones are:
- The clear, large, and very bright screen is easy to read and see. This is obviously aimed at elderly users and those with impaired vision. It can just make the whole experience a little more comfortable.
- Backlit keypad. Again, another feature is designed for seniors and those with vision impairments. The backlit keypad makes it easy to use a phone even in dull light.
- Oversized buttons. Designed with the elderly as well as those with poor dexterity and vision impairment in mind. The larger buttons make it easier to see what numbers you are dialling, and the larger buttons make it easier to dial the right numbers without making any mistakes.
- Straightforward functionality. When you have vision and hearing impairments, it can be hard enough to use standard phones without then having to deal with complicated setups and complex functionality that is hard to work through. Amplified phones usually have simplistic designs and do not require a lot of effort to carry out the basic functions.
- Extra loud call volume. One of the key features and reasons why you are probably buying an amplified phone in the first place is the extra loud volume, so you can hear the phone calls comfortably.
- Extra loud ringer volume. Again, another of the key features and reasons why you are probably buying an amplified phone in the first place is its extra loud ringer volume, so that you can hear the phone comfortably.
In addition to the features above, that could be considered standards, there are other additional features that some amplified phones come with.
- Telecoil compatibility. Although it is not always possible, if you use a hearing aid that will be compatible with an amplified phone, some are designed with a special port.
- Visual ringer indicator. If you have really bad hearing, you may benefit from having a visual indicator that the phone is ringing, which is featured on some models of amplified phones.
