What is Braille CapTel?

CapTel 880iB Captioned Telephone

Ideal for braille readers who have difficulty hearing over the phone, the CapTel 880iB Captioned Telephone works like any other telephone with one important addition: it provides braille captions of every word the caller says throughout the conversation. CapTel 880iB users can listen to the caller plus read braille captions on their dynamic braille display reader.


CapTel is easy to use. Just connect your braille display reader. It works the same way you’d use any other telephone. If you can’t hear what someone says, read the captions on your braille display.

Free Service

CapTel works with a free Captioning Service to transcribe everything the other person says into written words. There are no monthly fees, no service agreements. Your monthly phone bill doesn't change.
