Talking Phone

I just bought a Panasonic phone with caller ID.
When a call comes in, the KX-TG2680N doesn't just let you see who is calling, it actually tells you who is calling.
I bought it because I am a share holder in Fonix, the company that makes the text-to-speach tech. that makes the phone speak, but it would be great for someone with limitted sight.

Re:Talking Phone



I've got clients that could use something like this, and one of my colleagues has one (which she loves), but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone know where they might be for sale? Are they discontinued?

When a call comes in, the KX-TG2680N doesn't just let you see who is calling, it actually tells you who is calling. This is ideal for people who have difficulty seeing the Caller ID display. Talking Caller ID uses the Fonix™ Text-To-Speech software, which is capable of phonetically speaking names received by the Caller ID. If name-and-number Caller ID information is available, it will be pronounced in a male voice, in-between rings.

Features:

- Talking Caller ID announces who is calling using text-to-speech technology*
- 2.4 GHz Digital Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) Cordless Operation
- All-Digital Answering System (15-min.)
- Dual Digital Duplex Speakerphones (on base & handset)
- Dual Keypads
- Dual Call Waiting Caller ID*
- 50-Station Caller ID Memory & Dialer*
- 90-Station Phone Directory & Dialer
- Phone Company Voice Mail Compatible*
- Dual Backlit, 3-Line LCD's with 2 Display Colors (orange & green)
- Multi-Color Visual Ringer
- Headset Jack & Belt Clip
