Verizon's TALKS brings service to the blind and visually impaired

Verizon unveiled TALKS, a new service that gives blind and visually impaired customers audio feedback for messaging, dialing, e-mailing, Caller ID, adding and editing contact entries, writing documents and browsing the Internet. Users can adjust the volume as well as the rate of speech. Verizon is selling TALKS with the Moto Q9c as a package for $249.99 with a two-year contract and, of course, after mail-in-rebates. If you are an existing customer interested in TALKS, call Verizon Customer Service at 800-922-0204.

This is a nice cell phone for the visually impaired, but definitely not for those who only want a simple phone. I also find the buttons a little small that I can’t be too sure if the visually impaired can use this phone with ease. But anyway, I recommend the Just5 Easyphone for visually impaired people who prefer to use a simple phone with practical features and big buttons. My elderly mom is using this so I know the kind of convenience that it gives. This is very affordable as well so this is a very practical choice.
