[access-uk] Re: Stupid question about mobiles and accessibility

Does this mean that when you buy a phone intending to use it with accessibility you have to make sure it has the hands free feature?
would appreciate a bit more info, thanks in advance.

Hi Marie

Talks actually uses the external speaker so you can hear it without having to hold it to your ear. You can adjust the volume of the speech so that you don't annoy people in the same room as you. However, in noisey situations, I do have to hold the phone to my ear as the volume, at least on my phone, does not go very high.

Subject: [access-uk] Stupid question about mobiles and accessibility



to all of you who use a mobile with Talks or the other prog. that make the screen accessible this might sound like a very stupid question but here it goes, just the same as one never learns unless one asks:...
How can you manipulate the phone, I.e push its tiny keys comfortably and efficiently while you have the phone against your ear so that you can listen to what Talks is saying? isn't it rather awkward especially in a noisy environment?
do you have to use a headset to use the accessibility features? if so, it must mean a phone being less portable and another thing to have to remember to pick up from a table, a desk or these silly collapsible shelf you get to use on a train.
Please tell me how you have solved this problem, or is it me making one where there isn't any?


Thanks to all who will make the time to reply...

Cheers now,

Marie
