What is CapTel®?
CapTel is short for captioned telephone. A person with hearing loss places a call in the same way as dialing a traditional phone. CapTel uses voice recognition technology to display verbatim captions of the other party's conversation on the telephone’s screen, allowing the person with hearing loss to hear and read all comments.
