does anyone have a landline phone with large numbers for people who are sight impaired? I need to arrange something for my mum who needs large numbers on the phone as she is going blind and can only see really large lext.

If you search for Vision Australia they have a heap of things for blindness & low vision including big button phones for home.

Its called Big Buttons

Thanks for your reply. I have since been to Vision Australia and purchased a new landline phone. It should arrive next week. Just one other question would you know how to connect a landline that only has a port for the phone line to a stand-alone answering machine ?

Depending on the socket that is there - really old 3 pin weird looking one or the more up to date RJ12 style
Double adaptor, plug single end to wall socket, plug phone on one side, answerphone on other.
~$10-20 at palces like bunnings etc

Had need for one of these recently. Got it for $10 at JBHiFi.

These posts have been very helpful. Thank you. Just one other question..... where could I get a stand alone answering machine that can work with the new landline phone I am getting from vision Australia. I opted for the phone that did not have an intergrated answering machine because it was very expensive, but now I’m finding it difficult to find a stand alone answering machine 🤪
