Captioned Phones

Captioned Phones

For those who experience hearing difficulties, traditional phone calls can pose a unique set of challenges. Enter captioned phones—a modern solution for the age-old problem of missed words and misinterpreted sentences during phone calls. At the ENT, Sinus & Hearing Care Center, we recognize the power of clear communication and advocate for the use of captioned phones to bring clarity and convenience to every call.

What Are Captioned Phones?

Captioned phones come with a built-in screen that instantly displays a transcription of the words spoken by the person on the other end of the line. It’s a marriage of traditional telephony and advanced technology, ensuring no word goes unheard or misinterpreted.

Top Advantages of Using Captioned Phones

  • Clear Conversations: Say goodbye to repeated sentences and frequent “can you repeat that?” moments. Focus entirely on the conversation with real-time text transcriptions.
  • Cost-Efficient: Many captioned phones come free of charge, once qualified. Get in touch to know more about this offer.
  • Optimized for Hearing Aid Users: These phones are designed with the needs of hearing aid users in mind, promising minimal interference and maximum clarity.

How Do They Operate?

When someone calls your captioned phone, you converse as you normally would. Should you require captions, activating the feature connects the call to a caption service. Here, a communications assistant, backed by voice-recognition technology, transcribes the words spoken by the caller. The text then gets displayed on your phone screen, ensuring you don’t miss out on any part of the conversation.

Acquiring a Captioned Phone

Often, captioned phones can be availed for free. All it typically requires is a certification from a qualified hearing care specialist, attesting to your hearing loss and your necessity for the captioned phone service. Remember, both high-speed internet and a landline are essential prerequisites. Interested? Reach out to our dedicated team for further details.
