At PMC Telecom we understand how important it is to make telephones accessible to everyone and that's why we offer a range of inclusive telephones which are designed to help people who may be hard of hearing or have difficulty using a traditional phone.
We work with a range of the industry's leading telephone providers including Amplicomms, Gigaset and Geemarc to provide you with great quality phones. Each of our phones is manufactured to the highest standards and is designed to easily fit in with your existing telephone systems and networks.
Some of the common features that our range of inclusive telephones features include increased receiver and ringer volume, tone control, large chunky buttons, talking caller ID, distress functions, hearing aid compatibility and audio boosts.
PMC Telecom – Inclusive Telephones
In the past, people with disabilities or impairments would have to try and cope with telephones that were already available on the market. These were not really designed to offer the same experience for able-bodied people and disabled people.
In recent years inclusivity has progressively become a bigger issue, especially when it comes to designing and manufacturing telephones. Not just for the use of disabled or elderly users at home, but also for anyone in employment who is hard of hearing or who has another impairment, inclusive phones are an excellent addition to their setup.
At PMC Telecom we understand and appreciate the importance of telephones being available in forms with features that make them accessible and useable by all. That is why we have sourced some high-quality inclusive phones made by some of the industry’s biggest and best brands that have been designed with those who have difficulties or hearing issues that would make traditional phones impractical at the forefront of their minds.
Key Features of Inclusive Phones
What sets inclusive phones apart then? It doesn’t matter really what setting an individual will be using your inclusive telephone. It is more important that you pick out the right model to meet their own specific needs and requirements.
To help you do that, we have outlined some of the key accessibility features that make inclusive phones stand out from others available on the market.
Increased Ringer and Receiver Volume
Most people would probably argue that their phone is loud enough and that they sometimes wish they didn’t need to hear it (or they would simply put it on silent mode). However, for people with hearing difficulties, even the loudest setting on a standard telephone, whether it’s a corded, cordless, analog, or digital model, is not loud enough. Therefore, many of the models we have marked as being inclusive phones have greatly increased ringer and receiver volumes, so not only will anyone with hearing difficulties be able to hear it, they will be able to hear the person on the other end of the line.
Talking Caller I.D.
Caller ID is an incredibly useful feature for standard phones, particularly for those who are older or more vulnerable. However, conventional Caller I.D. is only useful if you can actually read the screen on the phone. In many of the inclusive phones we stock here at PMC Telecom, therefore, we have an incredibly practical feature known as Talking Caller I.D., for blind and partially sighted people.
Large Chunky Buttons
While phones seem to be getting smaller and smaller, not just mobile handsets but those for digital or analogue landline telephones so that they take up less space, many people can’t use them. Small buttons too close together are very difficult to press without making mistakes for the infirm and those with dexterity issues. Many of the inclusive phones tackle this issue by having extra-large chunky buttons that are more spaced out from one another.
Hearing Aid Compatibility
Something that we often take for granted if we do not have any hearing issues is how well a normal phone handset is going to work with a hearing aid. Fortunately, some of the brands in the industry have contemplated those issues, and in some of the phones featured in this section of our site, you will find handsets that offer compatibility with hearing aids.
Whenever we are sourcing new products to stock here at PMC Telecom, we are always looking to provide our customers with high-quality telecommunications systems. We want our customers to have a positive experience buying phones and other devices through us, we want them to be satisfied.
One of the ways we ensure this is the case is by only stocking products and accessories designed by the best in the business. Within the category of inclusive phones, therefore, you will find models manufactured by the likes of Tiptel, Maxcom, Geemarc, Doro and BT. When you invest in products designed by big names like those, you are guaranteed to benefit from a well-designed, feature-filled phone.
Appealing and Affordable Prices for All
Not everyone has the same budget when it comes to buying inclusive phones. With our customers coming from all kinds of backgrounds, whether they are purchasing for their business premises or their home, we have tried to reflect that by stocking a wide range of products available at different price points.
Therefore, it won’t matter if you have only a small budget or a more comfortable one, you will be able to find the inclusive phone for you.
