Mobile phones for deaf people and hard of hearing make communicating with family and friends a whole lot easier.
In this blog post, we highlight the benefits of amplified mobiles for the hard of hearing and explore some of the most popular models available on our web store.
With changing technology around us, we tend to take it for granted and rarely think of its vast usefulness and applications for different situations. Hard of hearing and deaf people are not limited to these developments in technology and fortunately, they have access to an array of assistive devices that can help them with their hearing impairment and communication needs. Modern mobile phones now allow users to be flexible and have all their need met in one device.
Mobile phones are now available not only for hard of hearing with different levels of hearing loss but also for deaf people. These mobile phones can be used for calls, emergency contacts, and texting and video conferencing. They make it possible for deaf people to enjoy immediate communication and give them the independence to have a real-time conversation and exchange information.
The latest smartphones offering a whole host of additional functions beyond that of making and receiving calls are now commonplace. However, they still broadly offer the same thing: they allow us to communicate in various ways, quickly and efficiently wherever we are.
Depending on your level of deafness, one cell phone designed for hearing loss may be more apt than others. Typically, modern cell phones provide a range of alerting devices including loud ringers, powerful vibrations, and flashing lights.
Many contemporary models are specifically designed to be used mainly for texting and are adapted for people with a hearing difficulty. The most widespread type of mobile phone for the deaf is the textphone. The textphone has a display screen and a keyboard. While with a regular phone, the users speak into the microphone, with the textphone they can type their messages and read them on the screen. You can use the texts options to send an SMS, have a text conversation or for instant messaging.
At Hearing Direct, we supply a variety of amplified mobile phones and smartphones for the hard of hearing. They are also of great use to the elderly or anyone seeking an easy to use mobile. Our web store is home to a leading selection of amplified mobiles including models from reliable and trusted brands such as:
In addition, you can also find a heap of valuable and informative resources on our blog. Our blog offers a selection of guides and reviews so you can better understand hearing loss and the power of amplified items. We believe you would be interested in the following posts:
If you are new to amplified essentials such as extra loud mobile phones, please get in touch and our team will do their best to advise you.
Texting between parties is one option for communication. With the help of the Next Generation Text Service, a relay operator translates between text and voice and facilitates the dialogue, either by reading the texts or by typing the voice messages for the deaf person. Their free app can be download for Android and iOS devices. Furthermore, you can use the textphone service by dialling 18001 or 18002 if you have a videophone.
If you have not checked your hearing recently, you can do so now with our free online hearing test. Our check only takes a few minutes and you will receive your results instantly.
