CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2012) - The 19 million Americans with mobility challenges now have a phone designed precisely for their needs. Fortissimo -- a voice-activated and hands-free speakerphone from Clarity, a division of Plantronics (
Fortissimo features 85 dBSPL of loud and crystal clear amplification, which allows users to have conversations from anywhere in the room in which the speakerphone is located. Fortissimo can also be operated with a remote pendant.
"Fortissimo is the ultimate phone for people with limited mobility," said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. "If you are in a wheelchair or simply can't move quickly around your house, Fortissimo is for you. Because of its powerful amplification and digital sound processing, it allows you to have phone conversations where you are most comfortable."
Fortissimo's talking caller ID and large LCD touch screen helps users identify incoming callers from a distance. It also features the Plantronics Vocalyst™ voice service, which allows users to post on Facebook and Twitter, email, listen to voicemails and news feeds, and check the weather simply by speaking commands to the device.
Fortissimo offers multiple adaptations for hands-free control, which can be particularly useful for the six million Americans who have some form of paralysis. These users can activate various features by blowing gently on the connected puff switch or touching the connected pillow switch with their arm, leg, head or shoulder.
Additionally, the device includes ClarityLogic™, an innovative customer service technology through which Clarity technicians can remotely access and make adjustments to a user's Fortissimo. Clarity representatives can adjust the volume, program the phonebook and make upgrades -- all remotely.
Fortissimo is available for purchase online at www.clarityproducts.com.
