Access for the deaf, Internet matters getting worse

[ Edited ]

Following Martin Lewis' savings ideas  Saga and UDL were possibles.

  • UDL savings account was by App only.   Nothing else.
  • Saga  Smartphone, theres no option for landline

If Saga wishes to phone me they could have difficulty in being understood. Numbers are tricky for

part hearing people. head bandage

More info
Smartphone numbers are becoming increasingly mandatory

Has anyone else found this? hear no evil

Re: Access for the deaf, Internet matters getting worse

Hey @Jenny105 I definitely think that smart phones are on the way to becoming essential for day to day life. I think it's a mix of convenience for the majority and cost and time saving for businesses and services. 

 

It's potentially going to cause issues for those who don't or cant use a smart phone in the future.

I am sure that is the case .

But according to the Disability Rights Bill  and Equality Act people with disablements should have equal rights and means . There are people , quite a few known to me alone who cannot use a SMARTPHONE.  So I/ they should be able to access those savings accounts and other things . Even if they cant have a smartphone. The deaf , cochlearised, disabled hands, etc

Or dont you agree.  Im trying to write to Martin Lewis savings guru, but cant find the means.
