Designed for people who have difficulty hearing over the phone, Captioned Telephone works like any other phone - with one important difference. Using the latest in voice recognition software, the Captioned Telephone displays every word the other person says. So you can hear what is being said and read word-for-word captions of your conversation on the Captioned Telephone's display screen.
Best of all, the Captioned Telephone captioning service is free. Spanish-to-Spanish Captioned Telephone is also available.
You can benefit from Captioned Telephone if you are:
