This section includes corded and cordless landline telephones with large keys and/or enlarged numbers which may be helpful if you have low vision. Telephones with spoken announcement of numbers dialled or received are also included as are telephone diallers.
Some of the phones in this group have a number of 'one-touch' memory buttons that dial stored telephone numbers. It may help if other function keys, such as memory keys are seperated from and/or shaped differently to the number keys1.
Handheld diallers in this section work when placed near a the mouthpiece of a telephone handset, the 'speak' or 'dial' button is pressed and the dialler emits dial tones which dial the telephone for you.
Dial pads plug into the telephone wall socket and have a number of large dedicated buttons, each dials a specific pre-programmed number.
Voice diallers also plug into the telephone wall socket. Once the dialler has been programmed you speak the name of the person you wish to call and the dialler rings their number. 2
