    My wife is a RN at a care facility and one of her patients has ALS and has trouble moving his fingers correctly. He doesn't really want a bluetooth device which I recommended but would like to know if it's possible to answer a call with voice only and to have it answer in speaker mode? Thanks for any of your ideas.

    Thanks. I thought about that but I thought that it needs to be connected to a bt device. I'm going to go with her in the next couple of days to try to figure it out. I'll give this a try.

    Not that it's a direct answer to your question, but many years ago (1985? 86?) as a student I did a work term for the Neil Squire Foundation (now the Neil Squire Society) in helping people with severe physical disabilities access technology. (I also did a work term at an extended care facility in Calgary.) I worked with MS patients, as well as others; we used "sip and puff" and micro-triggers, we even had one guy who could turn things off and on using his eyebrow... pretty well the only thing he still had control over. I imagine that the technology for that sort of thing has come leaps and bounds ahead of where we were at nearly 30 years ago!

    I don't know what resources your wife has access to, but the NSS specializes in that field and they may have resources (guides, videos, equipment, etc.) that can be of some service.

    Thanks. I'll give her the information and see what she can do for the patient.
