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.
How CaptionCall Works
Use The Phone Again with Confidence
Similar to captioned television, CaptionCall uses advanced technology and a captioning agent to quickly provide written captions of what callers say on a large, easy-to-read screen. It works like a regular telephone – simply dial and answer calls as usual – speak and listen using a phone handset like always.
The captioning service is free. Captioning is provided by CaptionCall and paid through a fund administered by the Federal Communications Commission.
View nearly instant captions of what your callers are saying on the large, easy-to-read display screen of your CaptionCall Phone. With the CaptionCall service, you get captioning that’s:
Automatic—No need to dial through the captioning service.
Secure—Safe, encrypted, FCC-regulated transcription.
