Behind the scenes, a specially trained operator at the CapTel SM captioning service transcribes everything the other party says into written text, using the very latest in voice-recognition technology. The written text appears on a bright, easy-to-read display window built into the CapTel phone. The captions appear almost simultaneously with the spoken word, allowing the CapTel phone users to understand everything that is said â€” either by hearing it or by reading it.
Captions are provided by a free service that connects to the call
Calls you make are automatically connected to the Captioning Service to provide captions
For the CapTel 840 model only, incoming callers must dial 1-877-243-2823 first, then enter your phone number in order for you to get captions* (if the 800 number is not dialed first, the incoming caller will connect to the receiver's phone without any captions present)
