Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Simple Digital Signage for Seniors 1

amb5l writes: My wife's mother is well into her 80s and does not do tech at all. She lives hundreds of miles away from us and will not move, so phone calls are very important. But her hearing is getting really bad.

So, I'd like to build her a device that can display words and pictures during calls. Plus maybe the date and a few notes on upcoming events at other times. It has to be 100% hands-off at her end. At our end we'd need a relatively simple UI to type text and upload pictures into. We have power and broadband (ethernet plus WiFi) right by the phone.
