Captioned Telephones for Hearing Impaired Persons
Making and receiving telephone calls can be overwhelming to anyone suffering from hearing loss. Fortunately, you can now hold telephone conversations thanks to the availability of captioned telephones.
A captioned telephone displays every word a caller says during a telephone conversation. The screen is big enough to ensure you can catch every word, even if you have low vision.
Most captioned telephones require a high-speed Internet connection to enable you to make the most out of your device. The Internet connection is pivotal since it generates the captions on the telephone screen using a dedicated free service that is available online. This service ensures the captions appear quickly and accurately during a telephone conversation.
