    My Mother can hear if you talk close & loud to her right ear. She’s totally deaf in her left ear. She can’t hear on the phone, can’t hear her TV with bothering others (she’s in Assisted Living. Does the telephone signal only flash a light or does it boost the hearing in the phone. She has a caption phone, but the close captioning doesn’t bring up the words due to whatever system they use there. Right now they are not allowing any outside maintenance people over. I feel if there was a way to make the phone louder. She used a pocket talker at the ENT’s office and she heard pretty good.

      #2 above (Krown Phone Flasher) flashes a light to indicate when the phone is ringing, but doesn’t affect the volume when speaking on the phone.

      Clarity HA 40 Telephone Amplifier for Mild to Severe Hearing Loss (at https://amzn.to/36sWEh6) increases the volume so phone conversations are clearer and easier to hear.

      ClearSounds WIL95 UltraClear Portable Telephone Amplifier (at https://amzn.to/2UuLxi4) also increases the volume so phone conversations are clearer and easier to hear.
