Basic phone for hearing impaired ?

Last edited Fri Aug 6, 2021, 01:07 PM - Edit history (1)

I am looking for suggestions on a basic landline phone for someone who is hearing impaired.
Just for making and receiving phone calls.

I've looked at sites online.
Hoping for some personal experience.

Appreciate all helpful suggestions.
Thanks

2. Just to add you can also connect the phone to a lamp so that when

the phone rings the light flickers.

3. Thanks

I did read that online earlier but only two were basic phones and online reviews didn't look promising.

4. I used to have one. It was from CapTel.

I'm bookmarking this. I'll be back.

5. I had a Clarity phone.

It was OK until my hearing went almost completely south. My hearing aids I have now connect directly to my iPhone and this works very well. Try your local phone provider. Some states have free phones for those who are hearing impaired. No cost if your audiologist signs an application for you. Iím in California and thatís how I got the Clarity phone.

Good luck. Having a severe hearing loss is no fun.
