  • I have a friend who is 92.  I need an answering machine for him that is simple to use, has very obvious controls with reasonably loud and clear playback.

I saw this one at Target.com – it has pretty decent reviews: http://www.target.com/p/at-t-1740-digital-answering-machine-with-time-and-day-stamp-white/-/A-14048572

So many products, even low-tech products like answering machines, aren’t very senior-friendly. Best wishes to you and your friend.

I would look at the Clarity brand. (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/CLARITY-Amplified-Cordless-Digital-Answering/dp/B005OJCYBK/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1479500099&sr=8-9&keywords=Clarity+amplified)

I have NOT used their answering machines, but I have used their ampolified senior-oriented phones for seevral Elderly Relatives (3 so far) and they were all very pleased. 

(Note – I have NO connection to Clarity, other than being a customer) 

 

Clarity designs their phones for Hearing/Vision Impaired Seniors. 

 

I hope this helps.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
