CapTel is a newer technology that allows you to view word-for-word captions of your telephone conversations.  This telephone and accompanying service is perfect for individuals who have understandable speech but who do not hear well over the phone. Captions are provided by a specially trained operator who “re-voices” everything heard from the hearing user into the voice-recognition technology, converting speech into text. The captioning service is free to users; its cost is covered by the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) funds as part of Title IV of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

You dial the other person's number, the same way as with any other telephone. While you dial, the CapTel phone automatically connects to the captioning service thru the internet. When the other party answers, you hear everything they say, just like a traditional call. At the same time, the captioning service transcribes everything they say into captions, which appear on the CapTel display window. You hear what you can and read what you need to.

The CapTel is for hard of Hearing individuals that have difficulty understanding or hearing people on the telephone.   We carry three different CapTel phones:  The 840i, 880i and 2400i.  These CapTels are for people with telephone service and high speed internet and can be positioned anywhere within your wireless network range or it can be connected to your Internet with an Ethernet cable; Wi-Fi compatible. Advantage is that captions automatically appear on incoming calls and outgoing calls, with no special numbers to dial.
