We are proud to provide CapTel® Captioned Telephones to those who need one. Ideal for people with hearing loss, the CapTel® Captioned Telephone works like any other phone with one important addition: it shows captions of everything the caller says. You can listen to the caller and also read captions of what they say in the CapTel display screen.
The phone is available at no cost with a signed certification from our office. CapTel service is provided at no cost to the user through a fund set up by the FCC to help people with hearing loss.
CapTel is the only captioned telephone made in the USA from worldwide components, and the only captioned telephone company that gives you several models to choose from. All CapTel phones include a large screen display, adjustable font sizes and colors, and a built-in answering machine that shows captions of your messages. Additional options include Bluetooth connectivity and speakerphone.
