TGP #301 CAP TEL Hearing Impaired Phones



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #301 hosted by Don Baine.CAPTELIdeal for people with some degree of hearing loss, the Captioned Telephone, or CapTel, works like any other telephone with one important addition: It displays every word the caller says throughout the conversation. CapTel is easy to use. It works the same way you’d use any other telephone. If you can’t hear what someone says, simply read the captions. – See more at: http://www.captel.com/captel#sthash.aE0djGZ3.dpuf CapTel phone users can listen to the caller, and can also read the written captions in the CapTel’s bright display window.You dial the other person’s number, exactly the same way as with any other telephone. As you dial, the phone automatically connects to a free captioning service. When the other party answers, you hear everything they say – just like a traditional call. The captioning service transcribes everything they say into captions, so you can read it too.

The way you see captions on incoming calls depends on which CapTel model you use. With some models, people call your number directly like any other phone call. With other models, callers dial the captioning service first and enter your phone number.
