Bell Introduces Accessibility Cell Phones

on May 21, 2016 @ 08:29 pm

I was listening to the radio earlier and a representative from Bell Canada was explaining how they came out with new cell phones to cater to those who have special needs, such as visual, speech, hearing or cognitive impairment, as well as lack of upper body mobility, giving the user the possibility of voice activated commands.

From what I understood, it's the first of its kind, or at least the first to develop the product to this extent. I thought I would share the link in case any of you need this service or have loved ones that might benefit from it. It could make their lives a little easier and can also serve as an emergency tool for them.

Here's the link:

(P.S. - I'm not affiliated with Bell. Just sharing and hoping someone can pass this on to whomever needs it.)

I think that this is such a great idea of Bell's that I am surprised that no one thought of it before.I use to work with a young Lady who had special needs and I'm sure she could handle something like this.Thanks for the news I'm going to call her now and tell her about this.I always try to keep in touch with the clients I worked with over the years because,they are very special people and special to me.
