CaptionCall understands that audiologists fill a critical role in helping individuals with hearing loss make choices to stay connected and to enjoy a high quality of life. Creating the CaptionCall scholarship is a way for CaptionCall to support the field of audiology. As a hearing healthcare advocate, CaptionCall offers many programs to support the work of audiologists, including webinars with industry experts; the Noah 4 module, which simplifies patient certification; the CaptionCall blog, to which audiologists can refer their patients and families to access practical information to help contend with hearing loss; and free Red Carpet Service – a professional installation and product training program for all eligible patients.
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.
