Amplicomms BigTel 1280 Big Button Amplified Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering Machine
For the hard of hearing or visually impaired, everyday tasks such as using a telephone can become a constant struggle due to low volumes and small buttons. The Amplicomms BigTel 1280 Big Button Amplified Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering Machine has been designed with these difficulties in mind, offering a cordless telephone with adjustable volume and larger buttons for easier operation.
The BigTel 1280 is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering from hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 30dB to help improve the quality of telephone conversations, ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This is particularly important if sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered, as it minimises the risk of the information being misheard.
The ringer volume can be adjusted up to 80dB, a benefit for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone ring. The included mute button ensures the phone won't disturb the user when it is activated, and the hearing aid compatibility means the conversation can be transmitted directly to the hearing aid for more efficient listening.
Easier to See
The larger button size on the BigTel 1280 is ideal for those with visual impairments. The keypad also features a backlight to illuminate the buttons, making them easier to read to reduce the risk of incorrect dialling. This larger size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity as they are easier to manage than smaller, traditional dialling buttons. The handsfree function will also reduce the need to hold onto the phone during use.
The telephone is fitted with an LCD backlit large dot-matrix display screen, with a menu available in six languages for increased usability.
The BigTel 1280 is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button for the last fifteen numbers, reducing the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered. The built-in phonebook will also help store up to one hundred numbers for convenient dialling.
The user also has the ability to programme two speed-dial numbers of their choosing. The buttons are labelled 'M1' and 'M2', and provide practical options for setting frequently dialled numbers such as family members or carers.
Answering Machine Features
The digital answering machine features extra-large keys for easier operation, and can record up to fifteen minutes of answering machine messages to help ensure you don't miss important messages. It also includes a two-digit LED counter indicating the number of messages, and offers remote interrogation with PIN code for secure access.
