The latest desk phone, the PowerTel 58 from amplicomms is a 100 times louder than standard phones (up to 40dB). Designed especially for people with hearing loss, it has an amplified answer machine and speakerphone for handsfree calls, a super loud, flashing ringer and is hearing aid compatible.
For people with sight loss, the large well-spaced buttons have the option of voice assistance on the keypad to announce dialed or incoming numbers.
It’s simple to set up and use the menu, displayed on the large backlit LCD screen, with clear fonts making it easy to read and scroll through the 200 name phonebook.
The new PowerTel 58 Plus is ideal for mixed hearing homes or work places as volume and tone preferences can be saved specifically to three different settings/users, and retrieved at the press of a button!
For emergencies the phone has three pre-programmable quick dial numbers and will work during a power cut.
