How it Works - CapTel 840i
The CapTel 840i works with a free Captioning Service to provide captions of everything your callers say.
The CapTel 840i connects to both your telephone service and to your Internet service. Every time you make/receive a telephone call, the phone automatically connects to the Captioning Service over the Internet. An operator at the Captioning Service uses voice recognition technology to generate captions of everything your caller says and send the captions back to your CapTel 840i phone. You enjoy conversations over the phone with the added help of captions.
Making a Call with CapTel 840i
Just pick up the handset and dial the phone number - same as you'd do with any other telephone. As you dial, the CapTel 840i automatically connects to the Captioning Service over the Internet connection. Captions appear to show you everything the other party says during the call.
Answering a Call with CapTel 840i
When the phone rings, pick up the handset to answer the call. The Captioning Service will automatically connect to the call over the Internet, and begin captioning everything your caller says.
