I am severely hearing impaired. I need advice re. CELL PHONES that can meet my specific TELEPHONE needs.?

Question by dollparty.geo: I am severely hearing impaired. I need advice re. CELL PHONES that can meet my specific TELEPHONE needs.?
I have Oticon brand Agil model hearing apparatus that allows for me to receive
a spoken phone call which is then verbally transmitted to my hearing aids via Blue Tooth
transmission.

I can control the voice volume that is received by the hearing aids
however the voice speech CLARITY received in my in the ear canal aids voice receivers is
not always distinguishable to me.

I have conjectured that the solution to this combined problem of lack
of telephone>Bluetooth transmission>hearing aid speech discrimination
might best be handled for me by use of a Cell Phone Brand & Model that
will allow for a telephone incoming voice to be heard, WHILE AT THE
SAME TIME POSTING A SCRIPT TRANSLATION OF THE CALLERS
MESSAGE ON A FAIRLY LARGE CELL PHONE MONITOR SCREEN
FOR ME TO READ AT THE SAME TIME THAT I LISTEN TO THE CALLERS VOICE.

The Cell Phone will also need to be able to post any incoming calls that I
can’t pick up on, at that moment, to go to my cell phones scripted “voice mail” for later access by me.

Note: I have tried a free SKYPE telephonic setup on my PC however caller speech
discrimination is a problem for me with Skype use

PS: I am retired. My incoming phone calls are relatively few during any calendar year usually only to confirm Doctors appointments.
My current cell phone carrier is SPRINT. My preference is to
stay with Sprint as carrier and to get advice about a cell phone line that Sprint works with but will change for best telephone service that meets my specific needs.

    clarity has more to do with your carrier and signal strength between your phone and the towers than it has to do with type of phone… especially when using bluetooth, since then you aren’t even using the built in speaker

    I would tell you, avoid the voice to text software programs, they are unreliable and vary too much from person to person… consider subscribing to a phone transcription service, where someone actively types out what the person is saying.
