Telephones and equipment for blind or partially sighted users

The following are features of telephones that a blind or partially sighted user may find useful: - a quick dial number memory or photo keypad enables frequently used numbers to be stored and automatically dialled at the touch of one or two buttons; - wall-mounted telephones may be useful for people with some residual vision as the telephone may be positioned at eye level; - a keypad integral to the handset allows closer viewing of the digits; - the raised dot on number five key enables location of this centre key and orientation to operate other keys; - large numerals and/or a distinctive colour contrast between the numbers and background may maximise residual vision; - increased spacing and larger buttons may reduce the misdialling of telephone numbers. Conversation recorders may record complete discussions and are useful for people who are unable to take notes.
