Vodafone now offers special caller tunes for speech and hearing impaired for free

By December 3rd, 2016 AT 6:40 AM

Vodafone India, announced the launch of special caller tunes for the speech and hearing impaired. These caller tunes can be availed lifelong for free. The challenge speech and hearing impaired users often face is that when they order any service like a fleet cab or a parcel from e-shopping platforms, the driver/courier by default calls their phone to inform them of his arrival, which they are unable to respond to, thereby missing out on accessing several such services currently.

These specially developed caller tunes provide a simple solution to this very practical and routine challenge. By downloading and activating either of the 2 special caller tunes, anyone calling them will be requested to send a message via SMS or Whatsapp, which they can see and respond to.

To activate these caller tunes, just SMS:

· “CT 8894702” to 56789 – for English-Hindi-English Callertune
· “CT 8894716” to 56789 – for Hindi-English-Hindi Callertune

Speaking about this unique offering, P. Balaji, Director – Regulatory, External Affairs & CSR, Vodafone India, said “Vodafone is committed to leverage the potential and reach of mobile technology to drive inclusion and address developmental challenges in the society. The launch of these Caller tunes is the latest example of this endeavor. The Vodafone Foundation has diligently worked with our partner Enable India to create this simple solution to make the daily lives of our specially-abled customers convenient. This innovative idea is also a small gesture of our support to the Government’s Vision of Accessible India.
