Learn More About How CaptionCall Works

Similar to captioned television, CaptionCall uses advanced technology and a communications assistant to quickly provide written captions of what callers say on a large, easy-to-read screen. It works like a regular telephone – simply dial and answer calls as usual – speak and listen using a phone handset like always.

The captioning service is free. Captioning is provided by CaptionCall and paid through a fund administered by the Federal Communications Commission.   

View nearly instant captions of what your callers are saying on the large, easy-to-read display screen of your CaptionCall Phone. With the CaptionCall service, you get captioning that’s:

  • Automatic—No need to dial through the captioning service.
  • Secure—Safe, encrypted, FCC-regulated transcription.
