Adjusting Handset Volume (For Volume Amplify):
  1. Choosing the Handset Volume (For Volume Amplify):

    Before you begin to use the Brother machine, you must decide if you need to set the handset to Amplify:On for a user who is hearing-impaired. The AMPLIFY volume level complies with FCC standards.

    Vol Amplify:Off This default setting is used if NONE of the users are hearing-impaired. During a conversation, users can press or to adjust the volume to Low or High. When the handset is replaced, the volume setting will remain until you change it again.
    Vol Amplify:On
    -Temporary
    This setting is used if SOME of the users are hearing-impaired. During a conversation, users can press or to adjust the volume to Low, High, or Volume Amplify. When the handset is replaced, the volume will return to the default setting of Low.
    Vol Amplify:On
    -Permanent
    This setting is used if ALL of the users are hearing-impaired. During a conversation, users can press or to adjust the volume to Low, High, or Volume Amplify. When the handset is replaced, the volume will return to the default setting of Volume Amplify.

    When you press or to adjust the volume, the LCD shows the setting you are choosing. Each key press changes the volume to the next setting.

    Is it important that you do NOT choose Permanent unless ALL users are hearing-impaired. Otherwise, the default setting of Volume Amplify may damage the hearing of some users.
