Canadian VoIP Provider Launches Adapted Softphone for Consumers with Disabilities

Earlier this week, babyTEL, a leading Canadian Voice over IP provider, showcased its adapted softphone for Canadians with disabilities at the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC) 2016 Conference.

According to babyTEL, the majority of current communication devices are not made for disabled persons, as they require the use of hands and fingers.

There are adapted solutions, but they can be costly for consumers.

In order to confront this reality, babyTEL developed ROAMbaby Access with the goal of allowing a disabled person to work with their current adapted devices, using new technology.0012475_babytel-roambaby

ROAMbaby Access is an adapted softphone that works on PC, Mac, iOS and Android phones and tablets. The softphone can be controlled with an adapted keyboard and mouse, using keyboard shortcuts and 4 different scanning modes allowing people with disabilities to make and take phone calls.

“We are excited to showcase ROAMbaby Access for Canadians with disabilities at ISAAC 2016,” said Stephen Dorsey, CEO, babyTEL. “With over 3.8 million Canadians living with a disability, we have developed an adapted softphone that can be used by disabled persons to stay connected with their friends and families.”

Headquartered in Montreal, and founded in 1991, babyTEL develops, in-house, advanced communication Services including SIP TrunkingCloud Business PhoneHome VoIPT.38Fax, and Desktop Fax.
