My mother is going deaf and also has a weak voice due to a laryngectomy. Is there a phone available that would amplify her voice so the person at the other end can hear her?

My wife has had breast cancer for a long time and it has spread causing a problem with her vocal cords. I would like information about a phone that allows someone with a soft whisper to communicate by phone.
Fortunately, there are phones that do exactly what you want—amplify the speaker’s voice so people at the other end can hear them.
The most powerful of these phones is Serene Innovations HD-40S Outgoing Voice-Amplified Phone. This phone will give your mom/wife up to 40 dB of outgoing speech gain so people can hear her better.
There is no guarantee that this phone will be strong enough for you mom/wife, but it is the loudest voice-amplified phone of which I’m aware. Therefore, feel free to try it for 2 weeks. If it does not do the job, simply return it within 2 weeks and get your money back. This phone is $124.95 + shipping.
