Thank God for the availability of this type of phone
This phone was purchased for a person with a disability. Vol control vital and simplistic design, large buttons important. I would say a heavier phone set might be advisable as the newer phones are light weight and prone to falling off a table.
I have been using Clarity phones for a long time. With a severe hearing loss makes it very difficult to understand conversation on a regular land line phone. With the clarity understanding is no problem. This JV 35 will do as well as the old phone I have been using.
