Captioned Telephone – Dial 877.242.2823
CapTel is for individuals with significant hearing loss who are able to use their own voice, but are unable to effectively use amplification for phone communications.
When using a CapTel phone, the other party’s spoken conversation is displayed word-for-word (almost simultaneously) in an easy-to-read window. While dialing, your CapTel phone automatically connects to the captioning service. When the other party answers, and with the caption button lit, the captioning service (behind the scenes) transcribes everything the other party says into written text using state-of-the-art voice recognition systems. You hear what you can, and read what you need to.
