The CapTel phone from Ultratec ensures clarity in a conversation by providing captions that users can check while making a call, which especially benefits those with hearing impairments. The phone lets users make calls as they would with a conventional phone by dialing the number directly. Designed to capture voice and captions, the phone allows users to communicate with greater accuracy.
The CapTel phone is convenient since it allows users to turn the captions on or off while making calls. People with hearing problems communicate effectively since the captions appear as they speak, which helps to keep a conversation going. CapTel enhances the quality of communication by offering an amplified handset to boost sound, as well as tone control to improve clarity. The captioning service is free, and users only have to pay for their telephone charges.
CapTel customers may customize their phones with options including a low-vision phone or a touch-screen display that offers a contemporary design, with features such as a built-in answering machine. Users may retain their original phone numbers, which their contacts may call directly without the hassle of first dialing a captioning service phone number. Support for star codes used with a CapTel phone allows users to access services such as voice mail.
