Why are Doro phones good for the partially sighted and the hard of hearing?
Doro devices come with large keys and are therefore regarded as 'big button mobile phones'.
This helps those with impaired vision to more accurately see what buttons they are tapping and reduces the risk of the wrong number being dialled or the wrong word being typed out in a text message.
