There is no denying that the main purpose of a phone is to be able to easily contact other people, whether this is a landline or a mobile phone. However, for many who have a visual impairment, it isn’t always easy to contact others on standard phones. Unfortunately, as modern smartphones get more and more complex to use, this only becomes more difficult too and it has left many unable to benefit from the main purpose of a phone.
Thankfully, nowadays, phones for the blind or partially sighted, like In Your Pocket, can help to make contacting others easier than ever before. You can stay connected by simply asking the device to call or text someone, it really has never been easier. It goes without saying that there are so many benefits to being able to easily contact people on a device like In Your Pocket and below we have looked into these benefits further.
Stay in touch with family and friends
Of course, one of the biggest benefits of this phone for the blind and partially sighted is that you can stay in touch with your family and friends. You will never have the hassle of trying to navigate a touch screen smartphone to contact people again.
By simply asking your In Your Pocket device to call a saved contact or a number that you read out, you will be able to speak to your loved ones. Not only can you keep in touch with people on a daily basis but also whilst you’re on the go too.
Never be alone in an emergency
When you have an In Your Pocket device, you can relax knowing that in the event of an emergency you will be able to easily get hold of someone. This phone for the blind and partially sighted can provide you with complete peace of mind.
All you need to do is add the word “assistance” to a contact’s name and then if you press the emergency button three times the device will text them your location, then attempt to call them. So, no matter what situation you may be in, you will never have to handle it alone.
Have all of your contact numbers in one place
Without a mobile phone, many will have contact numbers written down somewhere but this is unhelpful for those who have a visual impairment. With an In Your Pocket device, you can have all of these numbers in one convenient place.
You can easily add new contact numbers to this phone for the blind and partially sighted by asking it to do so. Thankfully, you will never have the stress of not being able to find someone’s contact details to be able to reach them again.
