Exactly Gene,

That is what I clearly wrote in the original post of this subject. The rugby 4 is a cell phone with Talkback. There have been other cell phone discussed on blindness related list such as the Gusto 3 and the odin. The rugby 4 is the first such phone that my carrier of choice has carried.

Hopefully I can check one out tomorrow.

Yes, I have downloaded and read the manual. On pages 84-85 it describes some of the features of Talkback. But the info in the manual is not enough for me to make an informed decision.

Just because a phone doesn't run android and is not a smart phone doesn't mean it is not reasonably accessible. As demonstrated in the presentation I did for accessible World, you can get a feature phone that is reasonably accessible and that doesn't run android. That is the whole reason I did my presentation, to make people aware that there are phones that are not smart phones that are reasonably accessible.

I would agree with you if the phone ran android but from what i could tell it doesn't.
From the little i've heard about the j5 i believe it does so should be fully accessible.

I would say any galaxy model will be a success to handle. I'm going
for the j5.

This phone does not run android as referenced on a different post
from me.
Your best place to learn about accessibility is to read the manual.
Here is samsung's page on it.
And the manual.

It is a flip phone with talkback, military grade.

I do not want any info about contracts or plans; I am primarily
interested in the scope and features of talkback on this device.
