A captioned telephone is a phone that has a built-in screen to display what the person on the other line is saying in text.
Benefits of Captioned Phones
- Never miss a word! Spend more time focusing on the conversation rather than trying to interpret what’s being said.
- Most phones are free (see below for more information on how to get yours).
- They’re perfect for hearing aid users!
Short for Captioned Telephone, CapTel is a telephone designed for people with hearing loss. It works like other amplified telephones, with an important addition: Every word your caller says is displayed on the CapTel screen to read. Similar to closed captioning for TV.Get Captel Installation
