Ideal for people with some degree of hearing loss, the Captioned Telephone, or CapTel, works like any other telephone with one important addition: It displays every word the caller says throughout the conversation. CapTel phone users can listen to the caller, and can also read the written captions in the CapTel’s bright display window.
CapTel is easy to use. It works the same way you’d use any other telephone. If you
can’t hear what someone says, simply read the captions.
CapTel works with a free Captioning Service to transcribe everything the other person says into written words. There are no monthly fees, no service agreements. Your monthly phone bill doesn’t change.
Set up can be as easy as connecting a phone line and plugging it in! Or CapTel can
work with your high-speed internet service.
Reclaim Your Phone and Your Life
CaptionCall® is a revolutionary new telephone and service for anyone who has trouble hearing on the phone. While hearing loss affects millions of people for many different reasons – age, illness, injury, loud working conditions, and military service among them – it doesn’t have to limit the quality of their phone conversations. With CaptionCall, it’s easy to communicate confidently with friends, family and colleagues.
Similar to captioned television, CaptionCall uses advanced technology and a communications assistant to quickly provide written captions of what callers say on a large, easy-to-read screen. It works like a regular telephone – simply dial and answer calls as usual – speak and listen using a phone handset like always. Plus, CaptionCall offers exceptional sound quality with audio and frequency settings that can be customized to each person’s hearing loss.
