CapTel Offers Free Phone Captioning for Those Who Qualify
Especially as they age, many people start having trouble hearing on the phone. Now there is a way for those with hearing loss to stay in touch—clearly and comfortably.
The Balancing Act co-host Julie Moran is joined in the studio with two experts tackling this problem. Hearing specialist Dr. Patricia Ramos talks about how hearing loss can have a huge impact on people’s lives, including depression and dementia. Barbara Dreyfus from CapTel shares how her company’s technology can help those with hearing loss stay involved in life by communicating clearly with their phones.
CapTel offers technology that allows those with hearing loss to read captions of everything that is said during home conversations. It’s closed captioning for your phone.
The best part: CapTel is free! CapTel phones work with a captioning service as part of a federally-funded program that supports telephone accessibility for people with hearing loss. No costs for the Captioning Service are passed on to consumers – no monthly fees, no service agreements. Your monthly phone bill does not change.
