CapTel 840: Playing your Answering Machine Messages

You can listen to your Answering Machine messages over the CapTel handset, while at the same time reading captions of what the messages say. There are two ways to play your Answering Machine messages:

Option 1: From CapTel Display Screen

1. The CapTel display lets you know when there are new messages waiting for you. Press the UP button to listen to new messages.

2. Follow the directions on the display screen to lift the CapTel handset and listen to your messages. Captions of the messages will appear on the display screen while the messages are playing.

TIP: If there are no captions with the voice message, press the CAPTIONS button. The captioning service will connect to display captions of your voice message even if the caller did not call through the captioning service.

3. When you are finished listening to each message, you can: Press YES to erase the message; Press NO to replay the current message; Press UP arrow button to review previous messages; Press DOWN arrow button to move to the next message

4. Hang up the handset when you are finished playing your messages.

NOTE: If you need to, you can have the message re-captioned. This is helpful if you notice a word error in the captions. Just press the CAPTIONS button, and the answering machine message will play over again – with new captions.

4. Follow the directions on the display screen to lift the CapTel handset and listen to your messages.

5. The CAPTIONS light will go off, and captions of the message will appear on the display screen while the voice message is playing.

TIP: If there are no captions with the voice message, press the CAPTIONS button. The captioning service will connect to display captions of your voice message even if the caller did not call through the captioning service.
