17. CELL-PHONE VICTORY

SOMETIMES A NEW PRODUCT SOLUTION IS NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER AND A OLDER PRODUCT IS THE BEST CHOICE.

SPECIFICALLY, THE SIGHT LOSS INFORMATION DETECTIVE FOUND THE SMALL AND TIGHT KEYPAD ON EVERY ONE OF THE ARRAY OF CURRENT WIRELESS TELEPHONES NOT GOOD FOR NO-VISION DIALING ACCURACY.

THE CLEVER SOLUTION QWEST COMMUNICATIONS PRESENTED 30 DAYS AFTER THE FILING OF A INFORMAL, NON-ACCESSIBILITY COMPLAINT WITH THE DISABILITIES RIGHTS OFFICE OF THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION, WAS A TWO YEAR OLD MOTOROLA CELL PHONE.

THIS ACCOMMODATION WORKS BECAUSE THE KEYPAD KEYS ARE THE SIZE OF A FINGERTIP AND EACH HAS ADEQUATE SEPARATION FOR TACTILE DIALING.

THE ONLY OTHER DIFFICULTY WAS THE NEARLY TWO-MONTH DELAY IN GETTING THE USER GUIDE IN MY CHOSEN ALTERNATE FORMAT, NAMELY TONE INDEXED AUDIO CASSETTES.

THEN, THE ICING ON THE CAKE WAS THE NEW WIRELESS PHONE IS CHARGED WITH MY EXISTING LOCAL AND LONG-DISTANCE SERVICES WHICH MEANS THIS CONVENIENT COMBO BILLING EVEN GIVES ME A MONTHLY BUNDLE DISCOUNT.

FINALLY, QWEST ALSO PROVIDES ME WITH DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE EXEMPTION FOR MY HANDY NEW PHONE.
