Help for partially deaf relative
Brian
Enthusiast - Level 2

Is there a signaling device(s) I can put on a relative's phone lines to flash a light or otherwise signal when she has an incoming call? She can't hear the phones ring, but I can turn up handset volume enough for her to hear the caller once she answers the phone.

Also, does anyone have suggestions for voice mail that takes a clear enough message to be understood by a hard of hearing person?  She can't make sense of her recorded messages from a machine, and I'm not sure using Verizon's own voice mail will be any better...

Thanks.
