ScreenPhone is ideal for people who want to voice their call but can no longer hear the response and find textphones too fiddly.
You can speak your part of the call as usual but at the press of a button you can receive your caller's conversation back in words on a screen (using a telephone call to a Text Relay operator).
The ScreenPhone can also be used like an amplified phone and like a standard phone.

If you purchase the keyboard accessory you can also type your message direct to your caller if you are unable to speak on the phone.
It's also hearing aid compatible so if you switch your hearing aid to T then you can cut out any background noise, making conversations even clearer.
The appearance and functions are similar to a standard amplified phone but with a much larger screen and text that can be increased in size to make it easy to read.
Answerphone messages can also be replayed on the display in text.
To use the text on screen option - dial the number you want with 18001 before it, or get the person calling you to dial 18002 before your number. You will connect with a Text Relay operator who will relay the incoming caller's voice into text for you to read on the screen. Simply press the 'V/T' button whenever you want to speak and press it again when you want to read their reply.
The beauty of this product is that it's flexible enough to suit everyone's needs. This makes it perfect for mixed hearing households.
