Are enterprise phones really accessible?

Phones are accessible right? Who doesn’t know how to pick up a receiver to answer a call, push the appropriate buttons to dial the call or place the receiver back on the base station to hang up a call? Does that mean the phones are accessible? Yes, phones do come with a raised bump on the five key but shouldn’t there be more?

What if you are someone who has trouble pressing those keys on the dial pad because of some special physical need? What if you are someone with vision loss and want to know something as simple as who the person is calling you, what missed calls you have or if you have any voice mails? What if you simply just had trouble figuring out how to transfer a call?

Since the phone is an important tool in any office environment, I would like to see more of a push to make this device more accessible to all. There is a solution available now that helps people accomplish the above scenarios and it is called accessaphone™.

Help me establish awareness regarding enterprise phones and the enhanced accessibility and usability now available with accessaphone™. Also, I would be very interested in your own personal experiences regarding features/functionality that might be missing from your enterprise phone.

About accessaphone: accessaphone is growing in popularity in the workplace. For instance, for the vision impaired employee, the application speaks letting them know who is calling, how many missed calls they have and when they have a voice mail. If the individual has a mobility impairment, through the use of accessaphone, the employee now can control his/her enterprise phone via voice commands using industry standard voice recognition software. accessaphone is compatible with several enterprise phone systems.
