FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund. No costs are passed along to individuals who qualify for the service.
Can I review the conversation after I hang up?
Yes, you can review call content immediately after each call. You can also use the saved conversations feature to save the captions for review at a later time.
What captioning languages are available?
Captioning is available in English and Spanish.
Can I control the handset volume on my CaptionCall phone?
Yes, you can control the handset volume on your CaptionCall phone. Depending on your CaptionCall phone model, volume is adjusted by turning the dial on the front of the phone or using the keys under the handset. The volume defaults to a lower setting after each call. Use the override volume setting to permanently adjust the handset volume.
Can I amplify certain frequencies on my phone?
Yes, you can customize the CaptionCall phone to boost those frequencies where you have the greatest hearing loss. While the phone is hung up, select Settings then select Amplification to get to the frequency amplification screen.
How do I add contacts to my CaptionCall phone?
