318-03-08-19, Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Staying in touch with family, friends and caregivers is crucial for people with disabilities, especially in the cold grips of winter. The Panasonic DECT 6.0 cordless phone makes communication easier in a variety of ways.
This phone is particularly helpful for low-vision users. It features a high-contrast, backlit keypad, large buttons, a white backlit LCD display and a talking caller ID that announces incoming names and numbers in either English or Spanish.
It also has a call block button that allows users to block up to 150 unwanted calls, allowing people with disabilities to focus on the important calls from loved ones and healthcare providers.
