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.

HOW DOES CAPTEL WORK?
The CapTel user speaks directly to the other party using a CapTel phone.
The other party speaks directly to the CapTel user, with all of his words transcribed by a trained operator into text using voice-recognition technology.
The CapTel user listens with his residual hearing and reads the conversation on the CapTel display screen.
