ABLE-PHONE is a leading supplier of adaptive telephones. We have been producing telephones for over 30 years.

ABLE-PHONE is the result of the re-directed efforts of a company started in 1960. In 1985 owner became acutely aware of the needs of the physically disabled following a diving injury to his stepson resulting in a 4-5-6 incomplete quadriplegic teenager.

Thus, we have dedicated our energies to enhance the quality of life and provide reliability and freedom to persons with physical disabilities.

IS VOICE RECOGNITION RIGHT FOR ME? Voice recognition is convenient and user-friendly but does have some pitfalls and drawbacks----NOISE. When you program the phone make sure the room is quiet. When operating the phone some noise is OK. Noise is any sound in the room other than your speech such as a TV, radio, medical equipment, speech from other people in the room, air conditioners, etc. Here's why: As part of the original setup; you record your custom phone control and dialing commands (names) such as "call John", " call Hospital", etc. The voice recognition records your names, and every other sound in the room at the time. When you later command the phone to dial with a name command the phone is going to look for the exact same sounds that it "digitized" when you first programmed the unit. If there are any significant differences in your voice or background noises, the phone will not recognize the name command. If your speech changes significantly from morning to night or day to day, speech recognition is probably not for you. Most speech recognition products for computers and industrial equipment require that you wear a headset to minimize outside interference. We utilize a state-of-the-art voice recognition design in order to allow us to provide speakerphone operation without a headset.
