A Loud and Visual
Phone For The Hearing Impaired
Talk face-to-face with loved ones EASILY. The Konnekt Videophone, a hearing impaired phone, is LOUD and clear, thanks to the two LARGE in-built cone speakers – MUCH bigger than the buzzy speakers in most mobiles, tablets and laptops. The volume is adjustable so if your hearing deteriorates, a quick call to Konnekt is all it takes. The 2-way video assists lip reading, deaf sign language, Auslan, video relay and screen-sharing of text or images. Need a hearing aid phone? Videophone won’t interfere. There’s a hearing aid loop output, and Auto-answer for nominated carers.
Severe hearing loss, or deafness? See our new Konnekt Captioning Videophone.
The ringing volume is separately adjustable and can be made EXTRA loud. When someone calls, you can hear the ringing from several rooms away – even if you’re a little hard of hearing.
We can make your Videophone EXTREMELY loud if you have trouble hearing, or softer if you must use it in a room shared with others. There’s even an optional amplified speaker, with separate sound control, for those who need even more volume.
The sensitive microphone conveys every nuance in your speech, and lets you walk around the room and do other things while you talk in your normal voice. It will also hear you call for help from another room.
Videophone is ideal for those who are hard-of-hearing. The large 38cm screen is big enough for you to lip read, use sign language, or read text.
In addition, your contacts can screen-share from practically any mobile phone, tablet or computer, so they can display text, photos or a browser to your Konnekt. At your end, there’s nothing at all that you need to do – just watch the show!
If you use a hearing aid, you can plug a hearing-aid loop into the standard 3.5mm audio output socket.
Hearing Impairment Phone
“The Konnekt video phone system has really helped Dad connect better with friends and family. As he is becoming deaf, seeing the caller helps him to lip read, the sound volume is stronger and the tone is clearer than a standard mobile phone.”
— Wendy Wintersgill, Registered Nurse (RN).
For those with deafness or severe hearing loss
Konnekt Disability Videophone can turn on lamps in other rooms or vibrate a pocket device whenever someone rings! Ask us how.
