First and foremost, it’s been designed to be helpful. Blindshell features to be simple and cater to actual needs of visually impaired users. Hence the keypad plus a large selection of handy applications. It is really intuitive to use. You can either use the keypad or control your phone by voice. And yes, you’ll figure out how to operate it in less than 30 minutes. Lastly, we wanted to develop a phone which will last hence the Blindshell Classic design was chosen to be practical, sturdy, and easy to use.

The lifelong free updates go without saying.


With voice control you can give the phone voice commands without having to use the keypad! You can do following, and more:

  • Calling and sending a message to a contact
  • Opening any application in the phone
  • Getting information about weather
  • Getting your location. Address and GPS


Instead of using the keypad to input text, just simply say it. The phone will write it down as a text! Among others, you can use voice dictation for these actions:

  • SMS dictation
  • Email dictation
  • Taking notes
  • Dictating your agenda


This phone has physical keyboard! Big, well spaced tangible buttons. We wanted the BlindShell Classic to have a premium keypad, and we believe that we succeeded. Operating the phone is again as comfortable as it used to be before the smartphone era. It is hard to describe the feeling in words, one just has to try it!

The spacing between the keys makes orientation on the keypad very easy, so you will be able to distinguish between the keys right away. No need to fumble with your fingers around to find the right button. No need to be worried about pressing the wrong button either.


Object tagging

By using a special stickers you can label objects around you. Teach your phone what objects are the labels attached to, and easily recognize them later by using your phone. You can either record a short voice message, or enter a written description. One set of labels is supplied with the phone!

Many useful applications

Object tagging isn’t the only amazing application you can use. Another is the Email client, with which you can write and receive emails from your friends and colleagues. With Internet radio you can listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world. Weather app will tell you the current weather and forecast for next three days. If you are unsure about the place where you currently are, use the Location app, which will tell you your current GPS location and a nearest address.

SOS emergency button

If you get to a situation where a quick help from someone else is needed, you can use the SOS emergency button. Pressing the button for at least 3 seconds will call your emergency contact. (This contact can be set whenever you want). The outgoing emergency call have to be confirmed by you, so you do not need to worry about making the call accidentally.


BlindShell Classic is packed with features! But you do not need to be afraid, that you will be overwhelmed. It is only up to you which applications will you use. You can just make calls and send messages, and nothing else. But, if you want to use the full potential of the phone, there is nothing in your way to make to most out of it.
