Ruth – Truro
Ruth from Truro has lost most of her sight through age-related macular degeneration and found day-to-day tasks were getting more and more difficult. She received a Voice Activated Telephone Dialler through the fund.
Ruth said: “I’m thrilled to bits with it. I can’t see the buttons on my phone any more so before I got the dialler I was always dialling wrong numbers and having to apologise to people. Now I just say the name of the person I want to speak to and the phone automatically calls them. It’s so easy to use, I can’t believe it.
“Now I can keep in touch with my friends and family more easily which is lovely although I think I’m going to have a big phone bill at the end of the month!”
