CapTel Captioned Telephone

Captioned Telephone

Ideal for people with 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 phone users can listen to the caller, and can also read the written captions in the CapTel's bright display window.

Read and understand while still hearing their voice.
