How do I know if I need CaptionCall?
If you have a hearing impairment that makes it difficult for you to use the phone and need captions to use the phone effectively, then CaptionCall is for you. CaptionCall’s service is intended for people experiencing hearing loss, regardless of the cause. This might include illness, injury, loud working conditions, military service, or simply getting older. You yourself may not realize you are experiencing hearing loss. If you find yourself asking people to repeat themselves, or if people complain you don’t hear them on the phone or keep the radio or TV too loud, you may have hearing loss.
