Voice Operated Telephone

Anybody know of a totally voice operated telephone?

I don't mean a voice dialler, or an amplifier but a telephone which you can can answer solely by voice, or dial out totally by voice.

Most of the ones I've found still use a handset which has to picked up.

Something like our community alarm which can be heard, and can hear us, in any room in the house.

Can't you do this with some hands free mobile telephones? Not up on mobiles but I'm sure somebody will know.

Many mobile phones can be set to voice control when bluetooth is turned on, so you don't need to touch the phone when dialling.

I notice that Samsung have now brought out a TV with voice control, surely there's a danger of the TV turning itself over if someone on one channel mentions another channel?

Sorry, I should have made it clear that I meant a landline.

A mobile phone is simply a cordless handset,and, like I said, there are plenty of such devices available for use with handsets.

Yup - never met one in person!

Thanks. I had looked at those, but they all come with handsets, or are simple diallers, except the one meant to operated by a dog.

Why not try one of the disability charities, or even your own GP/NHS practise, they might have an answer!.

They do, a community alarm, which we've had for years.

I don't want an emergency device, just something I can chat on without having to sit at a computer with a headset on!
