  • Never ‘Mis-Understand’ that phone call again!

    CaptionCall Phone pic

    CaptionCall for the Hard of Hearing

    Why CaptionCall?

    Because hearing loss shouldn’t mean losing touch.

    With the CaptionCall Solution, talking on the phone is stress-free. This comprehensive solution includes:

    • A state-of-the-art, captioning-enabled CaptionCall Phone
    • Free, nearly instant captioning with the CaptionCall Service
    • CaptionCall Support for friendly, ongoing customer assistance

    It’s all part of our innovative solution to help you get more from your conversations—and from life.

    Stay Connected

    Meet Ruth. She’s got 5 grandkids, tons of friends, and a phone that seems to ring all day long. That’s why she uses the CaptionCall Solution—so catching up on the latest news is as easy as picking up the phone, and she never has to put her busy life on hold.

    “Because my grandkids are calling. And so are my bridge partners.”

    With CaptionCall, you can:

    • Enjoy natural, easy phone conversations with family and friends
    • Understand every word of every call—so you don’t miss out on family news or social gatherings
    • Use the phone with a lot more confidence

    Work Confidently

    Meet John. He thought moving his accounting practice to a home office would help him slow down, but it just means he’s available to answer more calls. Fortunately, he loves his work. And with CaptionCall, he’s ready to talk new tax laws—or weekend tee times—every time he picks up the phone.

    “Because helping my clients means understanding every word.”

    With CaptionCall, you can:

    • Communicate easily with clients and co-workers
    • Make better decisions based on clear, accurate information
    • Portray a professional image whenever you talk on the phone

    Give Independence

    Meet Jennifer. In her busy, ever-changing life, one thing remains constant: family. That’s why she chose CaptionCall for her mom—so they can have deeper, more meaningful conversations whenever they talk on the phone. And her mom can answer life’s call with confidence, each and every day.

    “Because I love talking with my mom”

    With CaptionCall you can:

    • Make life easier – and more independent – for someone you love
    • Easily keep in touch in case of an emergency
    • Enjoy carefree phone conversations, just like you used to.
