The new BlindShell Classic is the mobile phone you've been waiting for, if you are looking for ease of use. You will find an ergonomic keypad with a standard numeric keypad, a directional pad and a few function keys that do the essentials. However, with one advantage, voice control!

BlindShell Classic focuses on the main, calling and texting. Its operation, based on option lists from which you just have to choose, makes it intuitive and easy to learn. You can of course manage a directory of contacts, mark some as favourites and even assign them a quick call key for loved ones you need to reach frequently. In addition, thanks to the voice recognition of the BlindShell Classic, you can call someone just by saying their name. 

This technology workshop meets via Zoom web conference on Wednesday, October 20 from 5 to 6 p.m. Eastern Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.
