Telephones and equipment for users with reduced dexterity

The following are features of a telephone that may be useful for people with impaired dexterity: - quick dial number memory enables frequently used numbers to be stored and automatically dialled at the touch of one or two buttons; - on-hook dialling enables the user to dial a number without lifting the handset. The handset on some telephones may need to be lifted up when the call is answered; - conversation recorders can record complete discussions and are useful for taking notes; - increased spacing and larger buttons may reduce the misdialling of telephone numbers; - enlarged keys with a concave shape facilitate more accurate key pressing; - the amount of pressure needed to depress a keypad and the weight of handsets vary between telephones; - hands-free operation allows a conversation to be held without lifting or holding the handset.
