The word-for-word captions help reinforce / confirm what your patients hear –giving them the confidence to enjoy talking on the phone again, knowing they’ll catch every word.

CapTel Outreach

The CapTel outreach team helps educate Audiologists and Hearing Health Professionals nationwide. To contact a representative in your area:

Federal Communications Commission
CapTel captioning service is provided as part of a federally-funded program, regulated by the FCC, that is designed specifically to help individuals with hearing loss access the telephone.
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 cost is passed on to the CapTel user for using the service.
