Hi Niamh, welcome.Too following on from Jackie's subggestion if you can wait till you visit Ireland (roi) again you can walk in to any Vodafone store and they will have the talks softtware installed for you, talks at no extra charge but probably wouldn't be the latest version but sure you mayy not mind that,, I wouldn't!

Between us, we try to help one another and have interesting views on assistive technology. I would recommend the Nokia C5 to you, which will run the Talks software. If you haven't come across Talks, where have you been? (smile). It is a mini screen reader that allows you to use your phone as a sighted person would. The RNIB sell the C5 with Talks, but you might also like to try www.comproom.co.uk or www.creativeeyes.co.ukI hope that puts you in the right direction. You will be pushed to find ahandset with good buttons on it now unfortunately.

I want to text and make calls, nothing more complex. 4. I would ideally like it to work in Ireland and France as I visit quite often.Simplicity is my greatest need I would love to be able to either walk intoa mobile phone store or order on line and for it to work out of the box. All suggestions welcome, I am getting desperate?
