Introducing the 16xx / 96xx Amplified Speech Handset

Avaya offers one Amplified Speech handset for the 16xx IP telephones, and one for the 96xx IP telephones. Both handsets operate in two modes.

Mode 1: Push-to-AmplifyReceive Volume

In this mode, while the ‘Push to Amplify’ button is pressed, the receive volume is at the level that has been set by the volume selection button. While the ‘Push to Amplify’ button is not pressed, the receive volume is at the minimum handset volume level.

In this mode, the handset satisfies both of the telephone amplification requirements in the US Government’s Section 508 procurement regulations. (Specifically, the Code of Federal Regulations, 36 CFR Part 1194.23(f) says, “For transmitted voice signals, telecommunications products shall provide a gain adjustable up to a minimum of 20 dB. For incremental volume control, at least one intermediate step of 12 dB of gain shall be provided.” 36 CFR Part 1194.23(g) says, “If the telecommunications product allows a user to adjust the receive volume, a function shall be provided to automatically reset the volume to the default level after every use.”)

Mode 2: Always Amplify Receive Volume (DEFAULT MODE).

In this mode, the receive volume is always at the level that has been set by the volume selection button. Pressing the ‘Push to Amplify’ button has no effect.

The table below indicates the model numbers, description, order codes, and Avaya IP telephone models that work with each handset. You can find the handset model number printed on a label in the battery compartment.

Installing and Replacing Batteries

The Avaya 16xx/96xx Amplified Speech Handset ships with 2 AAA-sizealkaline batteries. When installing and/or replacing batteries follow the instructions below.

1.Verify that you have two new AAA-sizebatteries and unplug the handset from the cord.

2.Remove the battery cover by using your fingernail, press down on the top of the battery compartment cover and pull out away from handset.

3.Insert the right-sidebattery, positive end facing down.

4.Insert the left-sidebattery, positive end facing up.

Note: Diagram printed on bottom of battery compartment shows proper battery placement.

5.Replace battery cover.

Always remove old, weak, or worn-outbatteries promptly and safely by unplugging the handset from the cord and then removing the batteries. Recycle or dispose of them in accordance with Local and National Disposal Regulations. Install new batteries as shown in the figures above.

Setting the Mode

Before using the handset, set the slide switch, located inside the battery compartment to the mode you want. The figure below shows the slide switch set to Mode 1 (the ‘Push to Amplify’ mode).

To change from Mode 1 to Mode 2:

1.Remove the battery cover.

2.Move the slide switch to the right for Mode 2.

3.Replace the battery cover.

Using the Handset

When using the Amplified Speech handset additional volume can be achieved by adjusting the telephone volume and the handset volume. It is recommended that the Telephone Volume be set at the middle volume setting. The best audio quality can be achieved with this setting.

The handset has three buttons, as shown below:

Volume Down

Volume Up

Push to Amplify

4

The handset receive volume changes (in steps) each time you press the ‘Volume Up’ or ‘Volume Down’ buttons. There are six volume settings. A maximum volume tone will sound when the loudest volume is reached. A minimum tone will sound when the softest volume is reached.

To ‘Push to Amplify’:

1.Set slide switch to Mode 1.

2.Use the Volume Up or Volume Down buttons to adjust volume to the desired level.

3.Push the ‘Push to Amplify’ button only when you want to amplify.

To ‘Always Amplify’:

1.Set the slide switch to Mode 2.

2.Use the ‘Volume Up’ or’ Volume Down’ buttons to adjust to the desired level.

3.The volume will remain at the level you set. There is no need to push the ‘Push to Amplify’ button.

Battery Conservation State

The Amplified Speech Handset has a battery conservation state. If the handset does not detect any sound in the receive or transmit direction for approximately 30 seconds it will automatically set itself to this state. An example of when this state may be reached is when a call is put on hold. In this situation the handset is still working but the user may hear less background noise. The handset will automatically return to standard operation when it detects a button press or when it once again detects sound in the receive or transmit direction.

5

Low Battery Indicator

You will hear a hi/low warning tone when the batteries need to be replaced. The warning tone will repeat at approximately two-minuteintervals, unless the handset is in a battery conservation state. When the ‘Low Battery Indicator’ sounds replace the batteries as described above.

No Battery / Dead Battery Operation

If the batteries in the Specialty Handset are not installed or if they are dead, the handset will operate as a non-amplifiedhandset. You can still make a phone call but you will not be able to increase the volume above the maximum volume that is provided by the volume controls on the telephone.
