Clarity Launches Altoplus with Additional Features

Clarity a division of Plantronics Inc. launched Alto(TM), a new corded home phone with 53 decibels of intelligent and powerful amplification designed for people with mild, moderate and severe hearing loss. Alto is the first amplified home phone to pass strict new industry standards set by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to ensure the best possible sound output for the 36 million in the US with hearing loss. Alto reduces noise and it makes soft sounds audible and keeps loud sounds in a comfortable range for the user through Digital Clarity Power(TM), a patented sound processing technology that functions similarly to a modern digital hearing aid. Users can adjust the amplification settings with a new ergonomic volume and tone control wheel, simple and easy to use for those with Arthritis or dexterity challenges. Clarity also launched AltoPlus(TM), a version with a four-inch titling LCD display and additional features. Alto can be purchased for $159.95 and AltoPlus for $169.95. In addition to boosting incoming sound, the Alto phones amplify outgoing speech up to 15 decibels. Both feature a speakerphone, and an extra-loud and a bright visual ringer that makes sure users never miss a call. More than just clearer call quality, Clarity also designed the Alto family with ease-of-use in mind. It features a talking keypad and Caller ID so that users with low vision can easily operate the phone. Alto and AltoPlus are also equipped with ClarityLogic(TM), an customer service technology that allows customer representatives to remotely access the phone and adjust and configurate the volume, tone control or other settings for the user. Although amplified telephones have been available for many years, the new TIA-4953 standard, published in May 2012, establishes the first official industry benchmarks for telephones designed for individuals with hearing loss. The purpose of TIA-4953 is to provide consumers with hearing loss with objective information to verify how a specific telephone model will help them to communicate on the telephone. The TIA-4953 standard establishes performance metrics for telephones serving individuals with mild, moderate or severe hearing loss. The standard requires laboratory based testing, using specialized telephone test equipment, to measure sound amplification (volume control gain), tone control, simulated use for hearing aid users, and the sound level of the ringer. The telephone sound output must meet stringent noise and distortion requirements even for the highly amplified settings.

Clarity and ClearCaptions Announce the Launch of Ensemble

Clarity -- a division of Plantronics and ClearCaptions have joined together to launch Ensemble, a amplified phone that allows individuals with hearing loss to read conversations as well as hear them. Through a seven-inch tablet-based display, Ensemble captions conversations in real time while also amplifying incoming sound up to 50 decibels. It provides both precise text and clear voice to create the most accurate phone conversation possible. When an individual places or receives a call on Ensemble, the other party's words are transcribed through ClearCaptions. As the user listens, captions appear on Ensemble's touchscreen display in a large, easy-to-read font that can be enlarged or adjusted with the swipe of a finger. Simultaneously, Ensemble amplifies incoming voice to improve hearing and create greater possible experience for the user. It features a patented digital sound processing technology that functions like a hearing aid to make soft sounds audible and keep loud sounds in a comfortable range. Users can adjust the tone or amplification settings to customize Ensemble to their unique degree of hearing loss. Ensemble can be purchased for $229 and comes with a limited one-year warranty.
