Hearing the caller's voice
Most phones with amplification of the caller's voice boost your caller's voice by 10-20 decibels (dB), which increases the volume by about two to four times.1 Most have a volume control so you can set it at a level which is comfortable for you. Some phones have tone adjustment for the caller's voice. Adjusting this may help to make your caller's voice sound clearer.
Alternatively amplifiers can be added to your existing telephone, either plugging between the handset and base unit or being placed over the handset each time the phone is used.

Amplifying your voice
Some phones can amplify your voice, this may be useful if your voice is quiet and / or the person your speaking to is hard of hearing.
Hearing the ring tone
If your phone is not already kept on a hard surface, like a table, try placing it on one as this can help to make the ringer louder.1,2 Some phones allow a choice of ring tones, some of which you may be able to hear better than others, they may also have volume adjustment. If possible we recommend you try the phone in a shop to see if the ring is loud enough for you. Alternatively, if you cannot hear the ring tone some phones have an indicator light that flashes when the phone rings. However, many are not bright enough to attract your attention if you're not already looking towards the phone. If you think you will be relying on the indicator light we recommend you look for a phone with a strobe light or consider a separate call indicator light which works with your phone.
