UK Based.

We are rolling out a RingCentral system at a charity at which there are a number of blind and visually impaired users. The visually impaired users are used to "Big Button" handsets like that shown below.

Does anyone know where we can either get similar handsets that are IP based, or some sort of transceiver or converter that will allow users to use the existing analogue device with RingCentral?

And before anyone suggests the app, this is not feasible as some phone users do not have a PC available to use.

Can anyone help me accommodate VIP's (Visually Impaired Persons) on RingCentral?


Many thanks.

Since RingCentral has intensified their work partnership with Plantronics who bought Polycom, that is where I would suggest exploring.

Many thanks, I have looked at the main manufacturers briefly but not found anything. I might give Polycom a prod.

Hey sd, I'm not familiar with that particular type of phone but it may work with an ATA
