  1. I am dissatisfied with the caption call device. The transliteration from voice to text display is extremely poor.
    Can something be done ?

  2. I do have the captionCall phone but am not getting the full benefit from it as I do not know how to use it for my specific hearing loss. For one thing when I answer the phone in order for me to hear I have to go to the “hearing loss” volume and I know that is not right. I also want to know how to retrieve voice mail. I feel I would benefit from a personal visit from your professional.
    I hope to hear from you soon.

  3. I love my CaptionCall. I have had it for many, many years and I don’t know how I can live without it. Even though I have hearing aids and get new ones every 3 years, I just love CaptionCall to help me communicate with my family and friends.

  4. I never listened to loud music or worked in a loud place. Problem with allergies caused swelling to the sphincter and stopped working and resulting in a collapsed the eustacian tube and caused damaged in my ears. The allergies are subtle and missed for sometime. That slow damage can be missed for a long period of time. You need to get that type of information out to people. Such a process can cause isolation, as you miss more and more of conversations, and choose not to participate in activities.

  5. I am so very appreciative of my Caption Phone. I ask family and friends to call me on this line so I don’t constantly ask them to repeat what they said as I need to do when on cellphone.

    Thank you for this program as it is such a help to be able to hear and respond when in a conversation.
