[access-uk] Re: Digital telephones?

Very few mobile phones have inductive couplers to allow hearing aids on T to 
be used. The only solution is to use a neck loop thereby keeping the phone 
away from the aid and the resulting interference. As Emma says in her reply 
the choice is very small but she is wrong in one point. Those neck cables 
have a built in microphone so the phone does not have to be brought to the 
mouth to speak. But they are not a very tractable solution really.

I've been in correspondence with Nokia for years now, since the arrival of 
digital phones, to try and change this but with no success so far.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
