Accessibility Features of the Sanyo 4700 Cellular PhoneBy Cook, Debbie; Access World, Vol. 3, No. 2, pp. 22-26
Publication Date: March 2002
Article reviews the access features and related issues for the Sanyo 4700 cellular phone from Sprint PCS. Seven features of the phone were evaluated: (1) adequacy of tactile markings, (2) status indicators, (3) dialing options, (4) caller ID, (5) roaming status, (6) menus, and (7) documentation. The tactile markings, status indicators, and dialing options all proved to be adequate, but the caller ID was not accessible. A feature called Voice Ringing was used to remedy the problem. Voice Ringing allows the user to store the number of people who have called. The entry can then be spoken the next time someone calls from that number. The roaming status required some practice to use, and the menu was difficult to program, as it required assistance from a person with sight to change the options. The user guide was also not compatible with JAWS for Windows or Window-Eyes.
