AEBC Telecommunications (CRTC) Committee Review of Bell's DORO 824C Cellular Phone

The AEBC Telecommunications (CRTC) Committee is pleased to share a detailed review of the DORO 824C Bell phone carried out by Ronald Pelletier, an active member in the Greater Montreal Chapter.

Ron’s report is detailed and offers an important perspective.

The phone is still under development and will no doubt add features and improvements.

Bell’s willingness to work with us by providing a phone for an extensive evaluation underlines Bell’s commitment to accessibility.

I urge members to read Ron’s evaluation, below.

I thank Ron for his detailed work on this project.

One member's recap of the Montreal conference

My name is Sharie Clarke and I am from the Montreal Chapter of the AEBC. I attended the AEBC 2016 AGM in Montreal. It was my first time at an AGM and over all, despite a few hick-ups; I found it a wonderful experience. There is something to be said for the sense of community I found there that is usually more difficult to grasp. I especially enjoyed feeling, for the first time, like I was part of a larger organization. So often, I find myself so hyper-focused on the causes of my chapter that I tend to lose site of the broader picture of the entire organization. I was very pleased to attend all three days and to take part in all they had to offer.

My only regret is my late arrival on Friday, because I heard the Friday morning workshops were quite good.
