Which Cellphones Are Suitable for Blind Users?

Odin Mobile specifically designs cellphones for the sight impaired and won the 2015 Access Award from the American Foundation for the Blind. Additionally, Samsung's Convoy 3 model is well-reviewed by the National Federation of the Blind. Accessible handsets feature physical keys, screen-reading capabilities and audible feedback.

The American Foundation for the Blind outlines recommended cellphone features for consumers with vision loss. For those with total vision loss, these features include accessible navigation and key controls, voice output of the visual display and audio alerts for critical information. For users with some usable vision, adjustable contrast, character size and zoom are also important features.
